If he has already been ridden English, don't worry about him having to re-adjust to the equipment unless he's a really sensitive horse.
As for the headset, you kind of have to re-train it all over again; when he puts his head too low, ask him forwards and upwards with your legs, then quit bugging him as soon as he puts his head where you want it. You want to use more leg than hand with a horse that's putting his head down.
