Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series, Windows 8.1, works great with speaker audio, plug in a headset or headphones (tried multiple sets), and I get sound, but I get a squealing sound. Not feedback, the mic is muted and I'm familiar with what that sounds like. If I plug in a USB audio adapter, works great. It also doesn't give me any trouble if I'm rebooting up until the time I get into windows. I've deleted the device and reinstalled in device manager, tried disconnecting all power sources and other devices (in case of some sort of ground loop)... at my wits end. Any ideas?

Play with the audio in cord and usb. Mine does the same thing and I found taking the cord under the laptop prevents this. Your headset cords are in full compliance of the standard for laptops. That is okay though, its only because the manufacturer is dumb for building the case stupidly.
