Monitor/Headphones question

    I am looking into some monitors, such as some of the Behringer Truth models (I can get a good deal at the store I work at) and hook them up to my computer for recording. I noticed that there isn't any type of headphone jack on them.

    How can I fix this so I can use headphones with these monitors?

    There isn't any type of headphone jack on my computer tower so I can't plug into there and the monitors dont have any.

    Sorry for all the questions guys... I am a recording newbie! :p Thank you for all of your help!

    What are you going to plug the monitors into? Do you have an external sound card?

    I was going to plug the monitors into my computer in the speaker jack... this is what I do right now with my "monitors" and it works fine but the speakers I use right now have a headphone plug in on them.

    I'm using the Behringer Xenyx mixer to record and go into my computer and I'm using the Behringer MS16 speakers.

    Use the Xenyx for HP monitoring.

    If you're soundcard doesn't have line level inputs and outputs, replace it with one that does.
    Run the output of the soundcard into one stereo or two mono channels if so equipped (and available).
    Run the monitors out of the Xenyx' stereo L/R outs.
    Plug HP's into the HP jack on the Xenyx.
