I just got a pair of Hyperx Cloud Orbit S headphones. With my old headphones I plugged them in with the 3.5mm jack into my control for Klipsch Pro Media 5.1 speakers. I have a Soundblaster Z something (2014-ish). Anyway will I get better sound with USB or with the 3.5 through my soundcard? I've never used a USB headset before so I don't really know. It seems like they want you to use the USB because it's like 6ft long and the 3.5mm is maybe 2-3ft long.
I got a set of HyperX Cloud Revolver S about a year ago, mainly for the Dolby 7.1 surround sound. I also have a Sound Blaster Z in my case, but I prefer to use the USB connection for the surround sound, and overall, I think they sound better. Not the same exact as you have, but very similar.
