Default Behind Neck Headphones with Mic and Remote?

I am looking for a Behind the Neck Headphone with a Mic and Remote that will work with Android. I have been beating the crap out of the Oracle (Google) for a few hours.

Good grief, you'd think someone made a decent set specifically for the 'droid.

I can't use earbuds as I need to hear some of the environment around me when I am bicycle commuting to/from work.

It's not a matter of android but rather manufacturer. What device do you have?

If you just want to play/pause or answer/drop then any headset should work. But for extra functions you may need an app or look at what's available from your manufacturer.

For the extra functions, this should do the job: Jays Headset Control

Nope, I've been using the app with stock HTC headphones and Phillips headphones.

My only complaint would be that despite being configured as Volume Up in the app, a long press of the remote activates Google Now. I suspect that's a ROM issue as opposed to anything app related though.
