Outputing mix through single physical output

Hi, I'm new to home recording and I recently bought a studio 26c. I'd like to output the mix, or parts of it, through a second pair of headphones. I have searched similar questions but can't find a clear answer. It seem that cue mixes are the way to do this, but I only hear audio from either the left or right side on the aditional headphones, depending on where I plug them. Since the cue mix only allows stereo, I guess this makes sense, but it still happens with mono outputs on song setup, so I'm not sure whats going on. I even noticed that if I half-plug it, it sounds on both sides of my headphones. I'm pretty sure this is not about my headphones (it's the same with both). Are the physical outputs on the interface actually different or something?

Also, why can't I make a mono cue mix? Do I need to I need to buy some weird split connector just so I can plug my second pair of headphone into TWO outputs instead of one? Is this really the way people are supposed to do it?
