USB headphones don't use soundcards?

Doing research, and read that my USB headphones should run off my integrated sound, as USB style headphones have their own built in sound cards. TRUE?

    If it only connects with the USB connector and not the 3.5mm audio out jack then it is a USB HID Audio Device, meaning it has a soundcard intergrated into the unit.
  2. USB Headsets totally bypass any integrated or dedicated card you have. They dont have a soundcard in them per-se.. A sound card has its own processor to handle the load of processing the sound. A USB headset works off of drivers that use your CPU for processing the audio signal.
  3. Yes, they do have a sound card.
