Sony MDR-RF985R headphones and Sony HT-NT5 Soundbar

I have a sony bravia xbr65930d television connected via optical digital cable (the HDMI ARC input is used for my cable dvr box) to a sony ht-nt5 sound bar.   I purchased the sony headphones MDR-RF985R and cannot for the life of me figure out how to connect them to the soundbar so that they will work.   While I can find where to make the connections on the headphone charger stand, I cannot find where the connection is on the soundbar.   Would the audio out come from the TV?   If so, would the sound be coming from the tv and not the soundbar and would that eliminate the subwoofer?     This entire set up has been a nightmare for me.   It took hours to get the soundbar to work with the television.   Any help would be appreciated.
