For amplified audio, you need a small amplifier and draw power from the Xbox PSU. Then just look for the same spots like a said before (L audio, R audio, Gnd) and connect them to your smal amplifier and then connect your headphone jacks to it.
I think I'll do a diagram so you can see what I mean.

I interpreted JaredC01 diagram to explain how to do this...look
This one is for just plain audio straight from the Xbox... un-changed, un-amplified. So using this setup is easy, but the sound is not loud enough in most games.
This one is basically the same but with a amplifier. Notice, that adding a amplifier not only the sound will be louder, but you could add a volume control to it.
If you plan on installing a amplifier you can draw power from the Xbox PSU to power it up.
Also, I noticed that when you add the headphone jack and connect the headphones to it, the Xbox will cancel out the audio from the speakers.
Hope this helps.
***Note: I am not taking credit for JaredC01 diagram. I just made one myself to explain how to connect headphone using the exact same pin numbering on Jared's diagram.***

Here's a circuit I made up a few years ago, which was a part of a tutorial on this site on making a headphone amp for the X-Box. Unfortunately I can't locate the actual tute on X-Box Scene. Sorry about that.
Man I didnít understand a thing about this diagram maybe by words I will word I will. I am very slow in diagrams but on manual I understand how a headphone works together with a headphone amp. I guess I should stick to manual because headphone amp diagrams definitely boggle my mind.

But the solution is, surely, otherwise obvious. If your TV or monitor doesn't have a headphone socket use an amp with one instead. Choose from the DIY amp circuit offered here, purpose designed headphone amps, headphones with built in amps or, of course, the hundreds of AV/Hi-Fi amps available. Solutions to suit almost any pocket.
All you have to worry about is how you actually connect it up.
