Different sound output per use

I have a 2010 Mac Mini and want to know if there's a way to output sound to two different sources depending on the application. Skype has this ability, but I was wondering if there's a way to do this for other applications.

My scenario is this..I have a Mac Mini with HDMI monitor that includes sound. I also have an iPhone headphones attached to my audio in port. I'm hoping to use Google Voice for calls and have the sound from that routed to my headphones while having other sound (i.e. youtube, DVDs, etc.) routed to my monitor.

Thoughts or ideas?

This setting would be application specific in most cases. It would be up to the developers of the application to allow you to use different audio sources. I'm not a google voice user, but I'd assume that you'd be able to route the audio through the preferences for the application itself. System audio would take care of the rest. Unfortunately, it would require doing things manually on application basis.

OS X makes it difficult to do this, but Soundflower may be able to help.

I'd pick up a cheap USB headset w/mic and use that for google voice and the like. It's the path of least resistance.
