Question Cheap microphone splitter/headphone amps? substitutions?

Hi all,
I got a gig coming up and I need a headphone splitter with volume controls for 4 people. I've used some nice ones at studios before, but I saw this online and thought it might work:

Any suggestions for cheap microphone splitter/headphone amp set ups for multiple people? For $25 it seems like it would be worth it, but maybe there's something more appropriate someone could recommend? I'm trying to find something cheap and I need it within a week.

Any recommendations?

That would probably work (85% confidence factor). It says "two-way" and it appears to have TRRS connector on the end of the cable. Which implies that it supports the modern connection with stereo audio for your ears plus mono microphone input. But you can probably ignore the microphone circuit feature. When you plug it into a traditional TRS source and use traditional TRS headphones, it simply bypasses the microphone circuit.

Thanks Richard!
I actually bought a Behringer HA400 for $25 yesterday. It seems to work OK, but I'm only getting sound out of one-ear on the headphones

There could be a dozen different causes of that problem. Complete details would be necessary to start analyzing the situation.

I think I might need to buy a 1/8" Stereo to 1/4" Stereo cable today and hopefully that will fix it.

Laptop > Scarlet USB interface > two 1/4" cables out into two 1/4" inputs on Fender Passport PA > 1/8" Stereo out to 1/4" input on HA400.
