Will a USB headset still work if the sound card in the PC has been disabled

I heard that if I use a headset on a system without a sound card or a disabled sound card it will still work. Meaning that I can hear sound and speak to users through a VoIP service such as Skype.

"From this forum thread:

USB headsets basically have a USB sound ""card"" integrated. For the Logi USB headsets that's a small unit integrated with the cord. You could pull your soundcard out of your PC and the USB headset will still give you sound.

Which makes sense."
