You, Sir, are a star. That is just the kind of magic thingy I was looking for. At 20 quid it is definitely worth a punt. In fact, I shall probably get a pair, and use the second one for the few occasions I watch the telly, when MrsLadyWife™ complains I need the volume too high.

Simply use the new-fangled pitch correction available in audio software to take the music down a few semitones, until you can hear the high bits again
Plus you can get interesting artifacts, like vocals sounding strangely metallic, but that seems pretty common in modern music for some reason anyway. Not for a minute suggesting that modern pop stars are selected for looks rather than ability, no sir.
