Here's my opinion having ridden both sets:
The silver one's are more comfortable for riding on the top of, as stated above you do have more hand positions. However I tended to stay on the tops 90% of the time, only using the horns when climbing or when off the seat to sprint.
The black one's are a little less comfy up on top, again since you can't move your hands as wide. Although I do sometimes grap or rest on the bars on the slight down angle before the bend since it's nice to switch it up. I am in the drops quiet a bit though, as I've ridden the bars more (nitto rb-021's) I'm feeling more and more comfortable in them all the time.
The bars you are looking at (the black one's) look similar to nitto 002's, so best of both worlds maybe since not as much drop?
All that being said, the pursuit/drop bullhorns will make your bike look way cooler/more streed cred/sw8t fixie swagg, so get those.
