These attenuators were about $30 per pair with shipping: In the end SYS would have been a slightly better deal after I bought a second pair, but I like how these take up less space and don't require more cables. 

I know what you mean about tidy. Since I can solder, etc. I would have turned on the calculator, bought a few resistors and put together a headphone extension cable that has the LPADs built in. Luckily I don't need this as my headphones are not too sensitive.  I've never seen a stereo LPAD that is applicable to headphones that is prebuilt and purchasable, only stuff for loud speakers.
