The output on the speakers is either Balanced XLR or unbalanced jack so with onboard sound in your PC you will need either 2 mono jack to jack cables or 2 mono jack to phono cables and a double phono to headphone jack adapter.

This will do the job actually

Yeah you don't need any of that. You just need to split the cable a little for the XLR connectors to reach each speak then plug the headphone jack into the green input port on your PC.
