Default Configuring Audio output on Dell

I have a dell docking station which is hooked up to a set of speakers & a monitor. It works fine, however sometimes I would like to use earbuds. When I plug the earbuds into the dock, the sound continues to play through the speakers (as well as the earbuds). The sound level is also much too high (100% vs the ideal 8%).

I have been working around this issue by plugging the earbuds into the laptop directly, but this requires me to change the playback device to switch between my speakers and earbuds.

Ideally, the dock would recognize my earbuds being plugged in, change the sound output (as the laptop does with builtin vs. external), and disable the speakers. If this is possible, I would like to know.
