Normally headsets are Plug-and-Play devices except for some wireless or Bluetooth sets. More info

OMEN 800 HEADSET DRIVERS?

This is an analog headset and should work fine if you just plug it into your computer. No drivers are needed for the headset itself.

 

What should happen after you plug it in is that it will be available as an output device under Windows Playback Devices. On most HP PCs the switch over to the headset is automatic when it is plugged in.

 

On HP PCs you can use the adaptor cable and the 4-pole jack plug into the headphone socket. This will allow the microphone to work too.

 

Some PCs need separate connection for the "headset" (the sound to the headset) and the "microphone" (so you can be heard). If you look closely at the headset plugs one will have a headset symbol on it, this connects to the "speaker" or "headset" jack, which is usually colored green on desktop PCs. The other plug has a microphone symbol and should be connected to the "microphone" plug on the PC, this is usually colored pink. Sometimes these connectors are on the back of the PC.

 

You can experiment a bit with the plug arrangements, it won't harm the headset. Also check the "Playback" and "Recording" devices are set correcly in Windows. To test the headset part just listen to music. To test the microphone you can use "Windows Voice Recorder" or maybe make a "Skype" test call.

 

Good luck!
