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.
