Yes. Fortunately, this arrangement comes pre-made in nearly endless variety at very good prices. Procuring such devices is known as "buying headphones".
Clearly you are trying to do something else. What are you trying to do?
If you want to hear it from more than a few inches away, headphone speakers won't be loud enough. You'll need different speakers and an amplifier of some kind. Cheap powered computer speakers would work and are cheap, but generally don't sound very good for music (though may still be fine depending on what you are trying to do).
