I have a a Audigy 2 ZS sound card, In which I mostly use for listening and music and occasionally playing a game or two.

I then just changed by keyboard to one in which does not have any multimedia and sound controls as my older MS keyboard used to have on its top face.

having to always control the sound, via the operating system is sometimes difficult depending on what im doing and sometimes I don't want to have to minimize a game or a movie to quickly mute the it.

Is there something I can buy, make, or use to allow me to easily mute and change volume quickly, hopefully via external hardware.

I have the headphones below and dont really want to lose quality.

If you don't have an amp now, this would be a good time to get one!
