Deep parabolic vs. shallower softbox for SL-60W or similar light

Is there a difference in the softness of the light that a deeper parabolic softbox such as the Aputure Light Dome ii provides vs. a shallower one?

I'm considering these two, and it comes down to space in my youtube studio setup aka home office.

This one is deeper (like the Light Dome ii):

This one is shallower (but similar in diameter):

Which one would you choose and why?  I'd take the deeper one if the light quality is noticeably better.  But I'd prefer the compact one for space.
