Do I need speakers for my computer in order for the sound to work?

I have a desktop computer, there is a plug in on my tower and it is for headphones, I plug my headphones in it, and make sure my volume is enabled and turned all the way up, but no sound.. I am not good with computers, so can someone help me out? Do I have to buy speakers, or is it supposed to work without them?
