Default [Q] Prestigo 5044 (Android 4.2.1) headphones issue

So, I've recently bought a Prestigio 5044 with android 4.2.1, but when I connect my Marshall major (minor aswell) headphones, the sound quality is extremely poor. That is, until i press and hold the control button on the headphones. Then the sound quality (and volume) is as it should be, or atleast the same as the phone's speaker. If you've found a solution, please help!
