Confusion about 6d mkii headphone jack

I'm confused about something I just read on the CanonUSA website. 

 

I'm planning on buying the new 6d mkii, but I've been bummed about the lack of a headphone jack, since I also shoot video. I was just reading some info on the Canon website, and it referred to a "headphone terminal." What the heck? What is a headphone terminal? Is a headhphone terminal the same as a headphone jack? 

 

Maybe someone from Canon can clear this up for me. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Confusion about 6d mkii headphone jack

Thanks for the page from the manual. I'm guessing that by "headphone terminal" they're referring either to the USB port or the HDMI port. I'm planning on mounting a small LED monitor in the camera's hotshoe, and then taking a headphone feed off of there. Maybe there is a way of getting audio off that usb port.
