Depending on what you (or your software) considers to be a "header":
If it's the ID3 stuff, then something like exiftool might do the
trick. If you mean /strictly/ MP3 headers, then MP3 seems to be
a multi-headed monster (each frame has a header [1], and I doubt any
frame would really make sense without one)
