Is it safe to plug my headphones (3.5mm) into a aux splitter (1x male to 2x female), then one end of a male-to-male aux cable into the splitter and the other end into my computer's audio output (headphone jack)? a diagram of what I'm trying to say. This would essentially extend the length of my headphone cable which is too short (and I don't currently have a 3.5mm audio extension cable).

I've tried this already and the audio works (surprisingly). I mainly want to know if it's safe for the computer and headphones if I use an aux splitter with one female port for input and the other (female port) for output. It's a standard splitter usually meant to split 1 output into 2 outputs.

I assume the voltage/electrical impedance or whatever wouldn't be a problem because it's still only 1 input and 1 output (I've read that 2 inputs to 1 output can cause electrical/voltage problems). This is obviously not ideal but is it safe? My headphone cable is just too short to connect to my desktop computer under the table.
