Default XBOX 360 + Headphones?

Not sure this is the right place to ask, but how do I hook up headphones directly to my XBOX 360? I just want to watch movies with headphones, but can't figure out how to do it.

Is there any way I can hook up a regular set via an adapter to the digital optical cable port on the back?

Depends how you have it connected. But I would have thought connect it to your TV or amp?

I have it connected to a Dell 2407WFP 24" LCD monitor without an audio jack, and my speakers are the Logitech Z-5500 set with only input jacks (the only outgoing cable is hardwired).

If I'm not mistaken, I'd need to bypass the speakers entirely to get my headphones connected.

Doesn't it have an analogue stereo-mini on the side panel of the control center?

...that side is facing a window, inexplicably I had never seen the 2 ports there before. Doh!

Thanks!
