Both Heap-Sort and Quick-Sort have time complexities of O(n log n).
Then which sorting technique is better in which case?

Neither is 'better' - each has it's strengths. It would be better if you can provide a context for this question, in the simple case - neither is better: Each has it's correct place and use.
