When you say you plugged in the wireless headset... Do you mean you plugged it into a USB port or the audio headphone jack?  If plugged into the headphone jack, you'll simply have to unplug it.  That jack typically overrides the speakers.  If USB, then what likely happened is the device forced the sound output to switch to the headphones.  To change back to the speakers, right-click on the speaker icon in the tray, select playback devices, and then change the speakers to default and make sure that device is enabled.
