Usb headphone for broken audio jack

Hi
I have a HP G6 2298SE laptop. Suddenly its audio jack has stopped working. Its broken :(
I am thinking about buying a usb headphone. If I buy a usb headphone and simply plugin to usb port, will it work (with or without after some setting some configurations in OS)?
Regards

Yes, they should not need an external driver. Windows should supply and install generic Microsoft driver when you plug headphones in.

Isn't that strange and a usb port is not connected to audio card and still producing sound? How this happens?

A usb port can output just about any signal including audio, print jobs, video, etc. Nothing strange about it, that's what it's there for.
