Default USB headsets on 360. Do they work?

My roommate has a USB headset and since mine got broke over the summer, I've been without one and it's a pain in the ass to type on the shitty 360 onscreen keyboard. But more importantly than that, I'm considering a small subscription to Live either a single month or a three month. My friend just dropped off a stack of games and among them are Call of Duty 4 (Game of the Year edition), Halo 3, and Gears of War. They're not mine, technically, but they'll be in my possession for the foreseeable future. It just depends on how much money I've got spare.

The USB headset working would be great incentive for me to get a subscription so I can get some online play in with the other half of you guys.

Get the chatpad for like $35 and it also comes with a headset. Very much worth it. Saves a ton of time typing shit up.

I might but I have access to a USB headset for free. Again, I'm curious as to if it works.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't work. Like Master X suggested, cell phone or cordless phone headsets work too. Anything that will plug into a 2.5mm jack.
