What stops you from plugging a headphone into the output jack of your
audio card.
It's a traditional system so the sound card is on the back of the case which sits in a desk and is a royal pain to get to. That's the one down side of having a desk with a specific spot for a system. cdplay seems to fit the bill. I can spin CDs and listen using the drive's audio jack. I just mute the sound card. If I don't need to be under the headphones, I just un-mute the sound with no contortions trying to reach the back of the computer case.
That's why they make extension cables. Add one long enough to have a
connector you can reach - or a splitter so both can be connected all the
time if the speakers have their own volume control that you can use.
You'll need that if you ever rip the CDs and play the files which is
much, much easier anyway. I'm surprised the speakers don't have their
own headphone jack that mutes them - some very inexpensive sets do.
