My headphones' mic is flexible like this: http://i.imgur.com/wv4Jq.jpg
You can bend it anyway you like and it (sort of) keeps its shape.
What is this thing (the pipe/tube) called?
Also, where can I get something like that of a larger size, or, are there instructables on how to make your own?


You can't make your own unfortunately.

Its called flexible gooseneck tubing.
Many hardware and electrical suppliers sell it in a variety of sizes and lengths. You can get it in colors, chrome plated, metal or plastic.

Search for "fully interlocked tube" and if that doesn't get what you are looking for then replace tube with conduit.
