    If it is green, it is the right one [edit: just discovered that for whatever reason, MSI colored yours red. Yes, it is the right one]. Most headphones/sets use it, but as mentioned, some use USB, etc.

    I don't know what kind of headset you have. Sometimes it has multiple lines to accommodate the mic, or it uses USB.

    I had a gaming headset with a removable USB Adapter. Why i love this Sound card, so many connections and do not have reach behind PC each time to connect your headphones, but at an expense ! Sound Blaster ZxR - Sound Blaster - Creative Labs (United States)

    Line out can go to a speaker set which may have a headset jack on it, depending on the model you buy.

    Red colored output tells you in this picture that it can be used for headgear. Believe the 3 to right of red are for speakers, sort of strange output setup not being marked or color coded well, wondering if it has surround sound, assuming it should for gaming board, meaning the 3 right outputs to 5.1 speakers.
    Again listing headset would be helpful for us to know which one you are trying to use having trouble with here.
