    Are the headphones plugged into the correct output? Most Soundcards use the same Line Out for both headphones & front speakers (2/2.1).
    Alternatively, is it possible you need a headphone amp? Headphone impedance could be the problem too. More than likely it's just the connection is incorrect though; let us know the Soundcard & Headphones.

    Sorry that I have took so long to answer back, but I have found out that the headphone wire has been slightly torn, I think this is the reason why they don't work. I tried my friends headphones and it worked perfectly.

    I think they are just forever broke.
