Most modern televisions have audio output sockets (normally red and white).

Simply buy an adaptor lead, rf audio to headphone.

It would be helpful to mention the make model of TV and from whom you purchased it.. As Morddwyd mentioned most TV have RCA sockets - Red">http://www.maplin.co.uk/cables-and-connectors&ei=N6MST6LZHcru8QO30ZTkAw&usg=AFQjCNHDSCN3ZOzEdd7XvhlltswoXXpYrA&cad=rja">Red White] for which 3.5 mm adaptors are available [enter link description here

The RCA/Phono sockets are unlikely to have high enough output to directly drive headphones!

There seem to be lots of headphones available that connect directly to Xbox.
