If ur expecting the sound to stop from the speakers connected to the mobo, when you connect the headphones to the dvd drive.

It doesn't work that way. Your mobo will still power your speakers.
By plugging the headphones to the dvd drive you can just simultaniously listen to the music on the headphones too.

What if I unplug the speakers, then plug the headphones into the drive? Will that make any sort of difference?
