I have not tried HD800's but will likely in the next few days. I wonder if the issue with the HD700s is that OOYH sounds best with headphones that can most faithfully reproduce the mathematics. That is, OOYH works because of the equations that convert a multi-point signal into a two channel signal that when it interferes with itself in the right way produces the sense of distance and space. A headphone that causes the outputed signal to deviate from the intended signal projected through it would likely produce non coherent errors. In contrast, a headphone that more faithfully reproduces the input signal would sound better with OOYH. In addition, the most important aspect to reproducing the OOYH effect would be in the body of the music and a headphone with little body would have more trouble in reproducing the effect. Just theories.
