    That is a standard connector headset, no? Why would it have a driver?

    if its a standard audio headset (round plug) there is no driver for it but for the audio card itself (built into motherboard or PCI/PCI E Card)

    If its a USB headset, a driver built into the headset itself is installed in the OS (Firmware chip in headset), so no drivers required to be installed.

    to me it sounds like u need to enable your onboard audio and install driver or install a sound card with driver or check which connection your plugging into and how you configure windows for sound routing

    It's a bit weird but no drivers should be needed anyway.

    I have everything set up and the sound enabled. I have a set of Sony wireless headphones I use for movies and music. But--no sound from these and thought I was missing something since he got no paperwork with them. The extra usb was different but it powers the sub it seems !!

    sounds to me like a Audio routing issue in windows unless the headset isnt hooked up properly or you got a bad unit or sound card

    They are correct. There is no driver for the Razer Barracuda HP-1 headphones.
    If you have inherited the HP-1 & AC-1 bundle, then, there are drivers for the AC-1.
    If, connecting to the AC-1; use the Razer HD-DAI™ (Dedicated-Audio-Interface) connector and, if not, use the USB and four other connectors on the Audio splitter cable. (See the manual)


    Windows 7 Compatibility page for Razer Barracuda HP-1 Gaming Headset
    The manual is here for the headphone installation.
    Driver page for the AC-1 (If, you are using it)
    TPU review of Razer Barracuda HP-1
    If you are using the AC-1 card and wish to use the control panel in Windows 7 64 bit... read this thread> Razer Barracuda AC-1 & HP-1 in Window 7 64bit
    Manual for the AC-1 audio card

    Yep, I believe it powers the amps in the controller.

    Goodluck:)

    I've got it now. Like I said--no paperwork and I overlooked the slider switch to power the amp !! Brain fart !! My bad--but--great sound it seems. He didn't get the card as it was a freebie !! I just built him a new 6-core tower with 8 gig and a blu ray drive, so he's loving it. Great kid with cerebral palsy, but smart as a whip !! College degree (advanced math)
    95Viper says thanks.
