Assuming the win7 machine has got bluetooth hardware and the drivers for that, then I'd not expect there to be any drivers required for the headphones.

You ought to be able to just pair them.

There are loads of articles on the internet on how to pair bt devices in win7.

If your pc has bluetooth within then there should be no problem.  If not, a small usb dongle can be had for very few pounds which will literally plug and play unless you buy something really obscure and cheap.  I bought an Asus branded one which sits in one of the many bluetooth sockets on the back of my machine and allows me to enjoy the immersive sounds of Internet land through my B&O bluetooth headphones.

It has paired the headphones but the music it does not play through them.  I clicked on troubleshooting and it tells me there are not the drivers  -even though it doth appear in my devices.

That's the sort of issue that I have never encountered though I have had pairing issues with older devices pairing with newer devices and dongles.  We have a Bluetooth speaker which decides on a whim whether to work or not but I'm not helping.  Sorry.

It may not be a driver problem.

I can find it in devices along with printers and shiz, but it doth not appear in playback devices.

Maybe look in sounds, output hardware, or similar.

While I have no love for Microsoft, it's not like Bluetooth works properly on any other platform.  It's cursed.
