My phone (Captivate) came with an earbud style headset with a mic inline so you could answer calls, talk on the phone, and listen to music. Are there any non-earbud (behind-or-over-the-head) style wired headsets like this? All I can find are ones that have two connectors (pink and green, as if for a PC sound card), or wireless bluetooth ones.

You're right I really can't find any wired-stereo-non-earbud-headsets. Here are some that have trade offs.

The following is an over the head/wired/non-earbud, but its not stereo.

This one is everything you wanted but it's not wired.

Yes, it is odd that these are not available since there are so many of the earbud type that are. I already have a few bluetooth headsets with input, including one with a boom mic, that work fine but I would prefer a wired one for all-day use.

I found a pair : Sennheiser PX 100-IIi . Although they are made for iDevices, the controls and mic supposedly work with some android phones (I assume the ones with 4 pole connectors). I will soon see. I already have a pair of plain PX100 and they are my favorite wired headphones, so if these work as I hope, they will be great.

Nope - they don't change the volume anyway, but you can use the button to stop and start music as well as answer and hang up the phone.

However, a good set of non-wired headphones that does have full control with volume, starting and stopping music, and talking on the phone, including good voice quality despite not having an external mic, is the Motorola S305 bluetooth headphones. They are not as good as the Sennheisers for music quality, though.

Some of the Samsung Galaxy series - Note, Note 2, Captivate, Skyrocket. Perhaps for some other manufacturer, like Sony, the volume controls would work.

OK, I have a MOTO G, and I have these http://www.meelec.com/MEElectronics_...m9p-bk-mee.htm and they work. I mean, the controls work like a charm!
I'm guessing it's because it uses the 4 pull jack, so that should mean that the PX 100-2i should work to!
