99% certain a phono/RCA 'jack' that you need, see above for pic.

so one of these?
also dont know if this helps but the mini jack from my headphones doesnt fit in the aux out so that means it will be one of these right? as a normal aux cable for like ipods etc is the same as mini headphone jack?

I'm finding it impossible to find a single male RCA to 1/4" TS jack, but this has two of them for a low price.

You'll probably want to pick the 3m or 6m option from the selection box.

Something like this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Twin-Phono-6-35mm-Jacks-Cable/dp/B005JKYI86/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1552644837&sr=1-3&keywords=RCA-phono+to+quarter-inch+jack

Obviously, you'll need to buy something of an appropriate length. And, as I said before, all the cables of this type will be supplied in pairs. Some will be two physically separate cables, and some will have the cables fixed to each other (as the example above is -- although it's usually quite simple to split them if that's what you need).

There are many different brands and suppliers -- the above is just an example, not a specific recommendation (although I'm sure it would be fine).

The only thing to beware is that a lot use RCA-Phono plugs with bulky bodies that may not fit nicely onto the keyboard socket if it is recessed. The ones shown above have a long outer metal sleeve which should fit nicely on a recessed socket.

Yep. Definitely RCA-Phono sockets.

Yes. That would be ideal -- and you'll be able to peel the two sides apart easily so you have two separate cables if that's more convenient.

also dont know if this helps but the mini jack from my headphones doesnt fit in the aux out

Yes. Definitely not a 3.5mm mini-jack socket. Definitely an RCA-phono socket.
