None of the examples really do it for me.
Note: you should NOT need to hard-code any XML.

Here is an example of creating a nested header and including a parameter.

$client = new SoapClient(WSDL,array());

$auth = array(
        'UserName'=>'USERNAME',
        'Password'=>'PASSWORD',
        'SystemId'=> array('_'=>'DATA','Param'=>'PARAM'),
        );
  $header = new SoapHeader('NAMESPACE','Auth',$auth,false);
  $client->__setSoapHeaders($header);

Gives the following header XML:

  <SOAP-ENV:Header>
    <ns1:Auth>
      <ns1:SystemId Param="PARAM">DATA</ns1:SystemId>
      <ns1:UserName>USERNAME</ns1:UserName>
      <ns1:Password>PASSWORD</ns1:Password>
    </ns1:Auth>
  </SOAP-ENV:Header>

Just to add some note regarding his john at jtresponse dot co dot uk

In PHP you can try following code to avoid the <item><key/>

$Auth = new stdClass();
$Auth->SystemId = "DATA";
$Auth->UserName = "USERNAME";
$Auth->Password = "PASSWORD";

$header = new SoapHeader('NAMESPACE','Auth',$Auth,false);
$soapClient->__setSoapHeaders($header);

  <SOAP-ENV:Header>
    <ns1:Auth>
      <ns1:SystemId>DATA</ns1:SystemId>
      <ns1:UserName>USERNAME</ns1:UserName>
      <ns1:Password>PASSWORD</ns1:Password>
    </ns1:Auth>
  </SOAP-ENV:Header>

Example by john at jtresponse dot co dot uk does miss one important point: to be able to add attributes they must be mentioned in WSDL. If they not exist in WSDL they WILL NOT appear as attributes but rather <item><key/><value/></item> elements.

If you want to create an soap header wihtout namespace and without an item key value setup, you can use SoapVar

To get this:
<SOAP-ENV:Header>
    <IdentityHeader>
      <SessionID>123456789</SessionID>
    </IdentityHeader>
  </SOAP-ENV:Header>

you can use this php code:
<?php
$headerVar
= new SoapVar('<IdentityHeader><SessionID>123456789</SessionID></IdentityHeader>',
     
XSD_ANYXML);
$header = new SoapHeader('http://tempuri.org/','RequestParams',
     
$headerVar);
?>
