I've made a couple, one with the resistors in the middle of the small extension, and then this one with the resistors integrated into the plug. It looks neater and avoids another solder point. I also want to make one that's just a short adapter, no cable. That's my next project.
This one's a 22 ohm adapter, just enough resistance to silence the hiss found on nearly all DAPs using sensitive iems.

Impedance adapters are usually referred to as a "balun," for balanced/unbalanced. They're also commonly used to adapt radio antennas for maximum power transmission.
If you'd like to read up on there, the balun Wiki is a good place to start:
