    A headset should have a MIC-OUT that would plug into the MIC-IN on the soundcard. Does the headset have two connectors? If so, they need to go into the appropriate connections.

    Are the speakers set up as 2 channel stereo?

    Some sound cards use the mic input as a output in 5.1 or 7.1 configuration.

    Check in Control Panel/ Sounds and multimedia/Audio tab/ Advanced button for playback.
