Audio Hardware to recognise headphones automatically
Audio Hardware doesn't automatically recognise my headphones. Everytime i have to unplug and plug back in I have to manually change the settings to headphones. This is a pain when working in an envoirnment constant change is required.
Fixed in Premiere Pro 14.2.

I am currently using 14.2 and this is not fixed for me. I just found this post while trying to put this as a suggestion for you.
I am currently using a brand new lenovo laptop on windows 10 and sadly unplugging and pluging back in doesn't fix for me anymore - I have to restart the program every time i want to swap from headphones to speakers :/ in fact it is so bad that when i have opened the program with headphones and then unplug i get a warning saying that there is no valid audio output and then if i press play on my video, it puts into some weird constant laggy state in which i have to close the program before it then crashes!!! :S This is actually much worse than it was before for me.

Make Premiere automatically set the audio output to match Windows setup. It's annoying to have to manually change hardware setup inside Premiere preferences whenever changing audio output from speakers, bluetooth, headphones or audio card. Every other app makes it automatically, so why not Premiere?
Hi, We need some more information. It sounds like there might be an error with matching the sample rates between the devices. Can you answer a few questions?
Are you on Mac or PC?
If PC, are you using MME or ASIO (most likely you are using MME, ASIO is fairly rare)?
Which EXACT version of Premiere are you using? I.E. 14.1.0 or 14.2.0 (beta)
For all devices you are trying to access, what does the Operating system list as the sample rate? You can find this info in Windows Settings, or in Mac System Preferences>Sound…
Are you switching the audio output device via "Preferences>Audio Hardware..." panel? Or some other mechanism?
Do you haver NDI or some other Transmit device installed on the system?

If I open Premiere Pro I can here the normal sound on my selected output device. If I then change the output device, for example from my laptop to my headphones, the sound is gone. Also if I'm trying to switch back: no sound. I have to close and reopen the whole program which kind of disturbs my workflow a lot. Appreciate if this will be fixed.
This has been well covered here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33897754-fix-the-default-audio-output-for-imac-pro

It's really annoying that when I switch between my Mac speaker and headphones I have to go in and change the audio hardware setting. It's such a waste of time. I almost positive that years ago premiere and for that matter all audio related adobe apps had this option.

Please fix the switch from macbook speakers to headphones in Premiere!! Takes a really long time to switch
Restart the application. I tried messing around with the settings, but I got nowhere. Simply restart and it should work!
Premiere Pro 2019 does not recognize my headphones. How the heck am I supposed to work? Sometimes it'll work if I restart the whole program, but often it doesn't, no matter what, so now I can't work because I can't listen to my audio properly and I can't work anywhere other than by myself, in my office. This is a huge hindrance.

There's been lots of users complaining (quite rightly) that they have to manually change Audio Output settings every time they plug or unplug headphones etc.
I've been working in a studio with clients, and sometimes want to put audio through their monitor, bnut switch it back to my laptop/headphones to work on their changes.
It would be handy to have a little tool panel that lets you select audio output/input on the fly. So you can select "Client Monitor" or "Headphones" etc. Without diving into preference menus.
There you go. Whaddyareckon?

I have this same issue!
On the old premiere when I plugged in a headphone it would recognize it and switch automatically to this headphone. now every time I plug a headphone in it or out I have to do this manually. please change it back to automatically. I looked into the settings/forums and auto function is not to be fount.
I have the same problem - it's inexcusable! This is entirely a Premiere issue. We can submit a feature request to Adobe, and they can choose to fix it. But other than that I have no ideas how to fix this.
Yes, me too. I am finding it very frustrating. Any ideas on how to change this??

My system is Windows10.
Since Premiere 2018 when I plug in my Headphones Premiere doesn't automatically recognize it. Because of this I have to configure every time when I change between Speakers and Headphone in the > Audio Hardware > Default Output settings > Headphones or Speakers.
This is a real pain.
All other programs like Browser, YouTube, ect., on my PC are automatically recognize either Speakers or Headphones are active.
