✔ Best Answer
There is less of a chance that the headphones will pickup any stray signals or noise. Have you ever heard that strange ticking sound that headphones and speakers make when your cell phone is about to receive a call? With the USB headphones it keeps the anolog portion of the signal as short as possible, so instead of a 6ft antenna, you have a much smaller antenna.

USB audio devices have been around for a while now, mostly gamers would use them because you could get the audio processing unit as far away from the computer as you could, because the computer case is a very RF noisy environment.
