    If you already have a way to control volume for monitors and headphones, and if you have no need for extra features beyond just the switching, take a look at the ProCo Switch Witch. It's just 1 stereo input and 4 stereo outputs. Each output has a toggle switch so you can A/B/Y any or all 4 sets of outputs. Simple and effective!

    I love mine, it suits my needs perfectly since I have no need for talk back, mono, mute, volume, etc.

    Me too. And it is built like a tank. It has taken a few beers spilt on it and survived. A bit of contact cleaner was all that was needed.

    We have the Mackie Big Knob too, and it's been a perfect companion to the pair of Focal CMS40s and the single mono Avantone MixCube. Two inputs has been good too, as the studio space has both the DAW computer (Mac Mini) and a Linux laptop for utility work. An important thing about the Bog Knob is that inputs and outputs are all balanced.

    Additionally we're switching one of the headphone outputs of our audio interface (Behringer UMC1820) using what was sold as an "input selector". It's a plastic box with three pushbuttons that switch three pairs of RCA inputs to one pair of RCA outputs. It's completely passive so we've just turned it around the other way. The headphone output feeds in, and drives one of
    1. The wireless headphone base station.
    2. A pair of "good" active computer monitors sitting together in a corner.
    3. A old cellphone with connections directly to its speakers.
