If the input impedance is really 47 ohms, you could use a T or an L or
simply a single series resistor. Think about 4700 ohm series resistor.
With that 47 ohm input Z that would drop the audio 100:1. Maybe simpler
than a complete cable, how about a pair of connectors back to back with
straight wires for all but that audio line. A little metal box would be
of benefit to maintaining the shielding.
Or if the interface to the USB dongle is a DE9 with a metal shell, it
might be possible to mount a tiny switch in that shell to insert the
4700 ohm resistor or short it out depending on the rig.
