I wonder though why New Macław posted that MaclawStudio's TWRP 220.127.116.11 or above is required to flash it.

With other recoveries it may...
I had a problem with earphones also.
Solved it with an app called "toggleheadset2" available at google play.
Check it out, should solve your problem also ;)
