If the requests are enough HTTP compliant, then you might be able to use the above in TCP mode provided you wait for a complete HTTP request. It works like this :

   acl winamp hdr(User-Agent) -i WinampMPEG/5.60

   tcp-request inspect-delay 5s
   tcp-request content accept if HTTP
   use-backend XXX if winamp ...

The idea is that the "tcp-request accept" ACL will wait until the contents parse as a valid HTTP request (at most 5s). Once this is OK, the ACLs relying on headers will be able to match.
