Nope. This is a digital to analog converter, as are other sound cards. You would need analog headphones (ie: connected through a headphone jack).

USB is digital to digital. HOWEVER, some USB headphones have their own DAC like this one: ASUS Orion Pro Gaming Headset Review. I am not 100% sure but you could conceivably replace the the in-line DAC with something like the U7.
