Why don't my wireless headphones work?


I am running linuxmint 17.1 on HP Compaq dc7800 desktop. I plugged in usb, green light shows, sound option set to usb headset, which shut off speaker sound, but no sound from headset. Any pointers appreciated.

This works for me in any Ubuntu based distros. Mint 17 also.
