Here's the steps you need to take to fix that problem right away. Windows sometimes don't automatically switch from one sound device to another and you have to manually do it.

1. Click Start then type in Sound and select it from the results that you'll see
2. Once it's open click on the tab that say Playback then select your headphone from the list device showing in there
3. Click on Set Default then reload the video or audio you're trying to play.
