Headphones working as speakers

Hi.I have my headphones connected to my front panel audio(but from my front panel,there are 2 white cables that are connected to the back of my motherboard,i called someone to do this for me,and he said that my case is not original,and he cant connect the pins to the motherboard,because in my motherboard manual its different pins and my case its not original) http://i.imgur.com/BQCD8qq.jpg
And as you see its speakers,i want to be headphones,but i dont know how to change it,i have my latest drivers.Can you help me ? I can listen to music,but i use the headphones to listen to Binaural beats and i dont want the sound to be distorted by the speakers.Actually i dont even now if the speakers as output distorted the sound,but i think it will be better if its set to headphones.

If the case does not the required "HD Audio" connector for the front panel headset/mic connections, you can buy a separate I/O panel that will have the correct connections. That may be your best option.

Here is one example. Amazon.com: Jmt Desktop Computer Host Case Front I/o Panel USB 2.0 Audio Mic Headphone 3.5mm Plug Pc Cable Cord: Computers & Accessories

Yes, that looks like it would work and give you the proper audio connection to the motherboard.

Hi today I got the front panel i gived link,i connect it to motherboard,but there is still not headphones appearing.I even disabled HD audio from bios but when i disable it,its shows me this - http://i.imgur.com/H5XxyNm.jpg
Then i enabled HD audio,and changed front panel from HD to AC97,well i have sound in my headphones(i listen to music) so that means that the front panel i purchased is working,BUT there is still no headphones menu appearing...its like the same as before.Here pics: http://i.imgur.com/MGK2vEG.jpg ,http://i.imgur.com/9CqLurF.jpg , http://i.imgur.com/1wYutjE.jpg
I dont know what to do anymore Is it possible because of Windows 7 ? Should i switch to XP so this thing to work properly ? Also on another note,before this i was messing with binary codes in regedit,trying to change jack assignments,but i dont think this should have any impact...
Also when i plug my headphones,windows dont detect that there is something pluged in,but when i plug the cables for my 5.1 in my back panel,windows detects that devices are pluged in.
UPDATE: I have changed Payback Device from the up same audio streams,to different audio streams,and headphones icon showed as you can see http://i.imgur.com/Iaoc3Nv.jpg BUT why in the center there are STILL speakers ? Shouldnt be some different icon ? Like some headball with headphones on ? And why when my front panel is set to AC 97 from bios,it shows HD 2nd outpud device ?
Also i noticed on test that Left and Right are swapped in my headphones.When i click for Left i hear Right in my headphones.
