I own the HD800,and the HEK,and would agree, they do compliment each other. If I had to choose one, it would be the HEK however.
I compared the HE1000, HD800, and Grado PS1000 when I did my beta unit review of the HE1000. I found that the HE1000 beat out the other two in more of the 10 audio categories. However, I still listen to my PS1000 more. I recently bought the HiFiMAN HE-6, their top headphone prior to the HE1000, since I had already gotten the HiFiMAN EF-6 amp that they made particularly for the HE-6, to drive my HE1000. I plan to soon do a comparison of the HE1000 and HE-6 like this one I did (higher numbers are better).
