The K1000 is actually pretty resolving, it just doesn't present the details straight to your face. This is coming from an extremely avid 'stats fan. That said, yes, go electrostatic. "Better" is subjective but if you're looking for detail, 'stats are it.
Yeah, I believe you may want to look into electrostatics. Omega 2 or something.
I have far from heard all the moving coil headphones out there, but believe you need to look hard to find anything with more resolution than the K1000.
O2. However the K1k does emphasize its detail more, so it can sound more detailed on first listen. The O2's resolution of microdetail however is on another level, compared to not just the K1k but pretty much everything else out there, too.

My friend, you need some electron microscope, not headphone.
