if I plug in my earbud into my note 2, and put into one (not both) earbud into my ear, I can use the cable to swipe the screen.

It's just the way capacitive screens work. The cable in your earphones is conducting some charge and the screen reacts to it as it does with the current in your fingertips.

Try this, hold a metal object between your fingers and try to use the touch screen by tapping the metal object on it. It will kinda work. Try the same with a plastic object and it wont. With capacitive screens, it's all about conducting the tiny electric charge
