I don't know about headphone amplifiers but mixing two line-level signals into one output with a Y-cable is dangerous for the two amps. Somehow they are fighting against another... or something. There have to be a resistor (or something ) in the Y-cable to make it safe.

(On the other hand, splitting one signal to two outputs is safe.)

A purpose-built mixer would of course be safe. Combining two headphone-level signals into one without any additional resistors might not be.
