Help with hooking my Xbox 360 up to my monitor

Hi all, I'm after a little help connecting my 360 to my 19" monitor.

I have the VGA connector which consists on the 360 > VGA connector and L&R RCA cables: i.e. this - http://tinyurl.com/4q9vuw - Video works fine and looks great.

The problem is my monitor only has 1 audio input and that's for a 3.5mm jack. I figure something like http://tinyurl.com/534zw6 would fix this (female RCA to male 3.5mm adapter).

What I'd ideally like to do though is be able to plug my headphones into the L&R jacks on the 360>VGA cable. I've however only found ONE cable that'd do this - on ebay. Nothing on DX, Maplin, etc. This is here - http://tinyurl.com/5oaxtw (female RCA to female 3.5mm). I'm not sure if this'd do exactly what I want though as the description is kind of hazy - it just looks like it could do the job.

I hope my description isn't too confusing. I basically want to use my headphones with my 360 that's connected to a monitor which doesn't have an audio-out port.

Thanks to anyone who can help. :)

That looks about right, you could get a Female RCA - Male 3.5mm connector then a Female 3.5mm to Female 3.5mm connector. This would mean you'd be able to use other speakers or headphones :)

Thanks mate, I'm gonna go ahead and order these two items:

3.5mm (3.5 mm) Jack Coupler/Joiner - Stereo (Headphone Jack) and 3.5mm Stereo Jack to 2 Phono RCA sockets Adapter Cable

Delivered for £3.41. :)

I assume these will work. Stupid question but the "3.5mm jack to Phono RCA" cable will work both ways right? As in RCA to 3.5 (that I want), not 3.5 to RCA. Just wanna be on the safe side!

All that stuff will work, actually got both of them delivered yesterday from Kenable for my brother to do basically the same thing :-O

Cable/adapter arrived today. Works like a charm - rep added for the assistance!
