How can I hear my Xbox 360 sound via my headphones and no sound through my TV speakers?

I have an issue with playing my games too loud for the roommates in my house, I have a nice pair of headphones connected to my Xbox Controller but I am not getting any sound. (except for via the tv speakers)
Is this port on my xbox controller only for chat?
Or can I listen to movies, games, and music through the headphone jack on the controller?

    The port on your controller can only be used for chat. What you can do is plug in your headphones into the TV if you want to hear that. I also know that they sell headphone/microphone combos for $100 (or something like that) which can be used to listen to the TV as well as chat with your mates. Hope that helps a bit.

    Its only for chat. I have a stereo system hooked up for my sound, I can use headphones through that. You could also buy a gaming headset like Turtle Beaches for sound. Other than that you are out of luck. Sorry
