Headphone Volume Box with 3 steps

Hi, I´m looking for a passive headphone volume attenuator with 3 set levels of volume: quiet, normal and loud. I can´t seem to find a box like this on the market, but it would not seem too advanced to build one myself.

My plan would be to use a three-way switch to route the audio through three different resistances that attenuate the volume differently.

I´m unsure of what role impedance would play in this. Will the different resistance change the sound of my headphones?

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
