AC coupling will prevent any DC current from phantom power resistor mismatch or other offsets from flowing though this shunt resistor. It will see only the audio signal power, which is negligible.

Also you can use a potentiometer to produce variable impedance. The pot must not have DC on it or it will crackle.
