Sound won't work properly from my headphones

I've been having trouble with my sound from my headphones. It sounds a but choppy where you can hear the background noise and not the main sound from what I've been listening to. It won't work on a safari or even on itunes. I know it has nothing to do with my headphones because its been working on my iphone and ipod. I've tested things out on control panel and it says the audio device isn't set as a default. I've been having trouble setting it and was wondering if I was doing it wrong. I have a windows 8 pc and I got it about a year ago so I wasn't sure what the exact name was. Hoping someone could help me out please. Thank you.
