Adapter/cable to connect TS HP's and TSR Soundcard?

Alright, so I didn't think things would be so complicated connecting headphones to my PC. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 558 Headphones with 2 rings on the plug I'm trying to use with my ASUS Xonar Phoebus ROG Gaming Soundcard that has this control box thing you connect the headphones to and it accepts a 3 ring plug. When I connected the headphones with the 1/8 adapter I had sound only out of one side. After searching online I thought I needed a different adapter so I ordered one that specified stereo-to-stereo assuming only hearing one channel meant mono. Nope, same thing. Now I've been reading about TS v TRS, balanced v unbalanced, mono v stereo.... yeah it's safe to say I'm confused as to what I need.

Can anyone tell me what adapter or cable I need?

Is there a better section in this forum for my question? I'm new here, obviously.
