My N7000's earbuds are on the way out - cable fraying at the plug. Straight-up replacement is only five bucks on Amazon (Amazon.com: Samsung Wired Stereo EHS60 Serious Sound Earbud 3.5mm universal headset with In-Line Multi-Function Answer/Call Button (Black): Cell Phones & Accessories) but the sound quality is commensurate with the price. OTOH, inline volume control is handy for use in the gym... so I'd be up for a third-party set with better fidelity and the inline control. Apple's standard definitely does not work with the Samsung Note. The Question: How many standards for the inline control are there? I see some buds that purport to support the Note 2, but no mention of my old Note. But I'd hope that anything "Samsung" would work with all Samsung tablets and smartphones.... Or am I just wishing?
