Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OK, lets see if your computer recognizes it. Please post the output of arecord -l. That should list all of the audio devices that your system knows about. Each device will have a "card" number. To configure your USB headset, run alsamixer -c # Where # is the card number of your headset. That should let you set the volume.
line and jack can't be configured, it doesn't let me put anything up, is this why there is no sound coming from my logitech headset? Nvm, i put the card number as 0 when logitech was 1, it shows it does have volume as for speaker and mic... but still no sound...

Then look in the menus and see if there is some sort of settings or options. I've never used exaile, so I'm not going to be much help.
The other place to look is in your System or Preferences menu for the Sound settings and see if you can make your headset the default. I know those are there in the Gnome interface, I'm not sure where in XFCE it would be.
