Searching the forums for "headphones" gives this:

The RCA-to-stereo-mini adapter cable turns out to be really difficult to find though.

In the end I turned up this one on Amazon for $6.99:

thanks for looking for me
but had a thought though how would i adjust the volume of the headphones ?

would a wireless headphone set work as it would have its own amp in it plus yuo are free to walk around the room also i think if you turn down the main speaker volume am i right in saying the rca output would still be the same
On the SONOS zoneplayers both the Line-Out and speaker terminals respond to the SONOS volume control.

I don't have an example to point you to but there are "boxes" that connect to an amplifier's speaker terminals which provide a jack for headphones and a switch to turn off the speakers.

Somewhat rare, but there are models that also have a volume control for the headphones. Not having the headphone volume control is usually not a major fault unless you are attempting to run the speakers and headphones simultaneously.
