My current Galaxy S3 came with earbuds that have have music control buttons on the headphone cord. 3 buttons in total, one for volume up, one for volume down, and one for play/pause (and could also skip with a double click).

Will my GS3 earbuds' inline buttons work with the Moto X?

If not, is there another 3rd party earbuds that would replicate the same music functions on the Moto X as the stock earbuds did with the GS3 (Volume up/down, play/pause, skip/back)?

from my experience, it depends on the music player that you use. I have the same earphones and i tried using them to see if it worked and it didnt. so i thought it was the headphones. Than i tried to use my beats headphones buttons and it didnt work either. I than looked into other music players to try. I use goneMad music player for example and in the settings there is an option to turn on button functions. i turned that on and now the buttons on both headphones work

I can confirm that the GS3 white earbuds controls dont work with the Moto X in PowerAmp or Google Play Music.

That's true, Samsung's ones doesnt work.
