I don't think you will notice any difference at all in terms of quality. It's up to you. If you need more room for other USB devices then get the 3.5mm variant. If you prefer to have your speakers plugged in (if your speakers use the 3.5mm jack) at the same time as your headphones, then go with the USB.

Remember that if you have the 3.5mm jack, you can plug it directly into an analog output from a soundcard if you ever choose to pick one up.

The USB one has virtualized surround sound BTW. Does that change your opinions?

If not, I'll get the 3.5MM since it is cheaper.

Not really. That virtual surround comes from a very low quality mini soundcard that isn't even soldered. They just hot-glue those things and call it a day. I'd rather have the option for analog input to a legitimate soundcard at a later date personally, since you can get superior surround sound on a card as cheap as $49.99 and it's an investment that can last for several PC-builds.
