As far as I know, OSS is a legacy thing. You're probably out of luck 
finding drivers for USB headsets, not to mention finding an OSS 
implementation for modern kernels. If I'm not misstaken, OSS nowadays is 
more of an emulation/compatibility layer on top of ALSA.

Maybe you need to specify for the application which ALSA device to use, or 
change the default sound device. It was a long time since I muddled with 
ALSA, som I have no specifics a thte moment. Then again, maybe you already 
did try those suggestions.
