(Not Trisquel-related. Free software related) Free earphones and headphones?

In the same style as my other post about monitors I wonder if earphones and/or headphones fall victim for proprietary software or if they are such "simple" pieces of technology that proprietary software is not an issue in the world of headphones?

While I'm at it I'm also wondering about this in regards to other "simple" devices as mouses, keyboards etc etc :)

Lol :p

I am simple man, asking questions. Although that was a funny article, it didn't help me :p

But anyway, seems like I posted the same post twice (just slightly different wording), that was unfortunate. Is it impossible to delete posts?

>mouses

Not about freedom, but ethics nonetheless: For "fair" mouses, have a look at https://www.nager-it.de/en (website available in English, German, French, Hungarian, and Mandarin).
IIRC, someone described their approach as making sure as much as possible is done in countries and companies that already have decent worker rights, as opposed to Fairphone's approach of leaving production in countries that don't protect workers' rights while trying to make life a little less horrible for workers in their production chain than it is for the poor souls in major phone vendors' production chains.
