I have a broken headphone and quite a few frontpanel audio connectors.
Is it possible and if it is which cables should I connect to which?
I have a Philips shp 2000.(I'm 15 and don't have enough money to buy a newone)

So repair the jack. You can often find the replacement parts on sites like ebay. I'd not do a direct hardwire since that'll break the connection permanently, so if and when those headphones finally do fully break, you'll need to redo the entire thing again.

I wouldnt suggest that at all. If you already dont know what you are doing, it isnt feasible for someone to teach you. If you mess up your motherboard youll be out even more cash. Buy a cheap pair of headphones. I bought a $5 pair a few years ago with a mic that lasted me a year.

What is broken on the headphones? The plug? It would be safer to just try to fix the headphones and not solder wires into a connector on your mobo. The front panel connector is usually like an 8pin, I have no idea how to wire some headphones into an 8pin front panel audio connector.

Well you know exactly where the issue is, so that's what needs fixing. Pulling a MacGyver and using duct-tape and a pocket knife to bypass the issue really solves nothing except temporarily.
