What would be the better choice between the two, and what are the differences?

The Talons have a wider field of view. 

The Vipers are more expensive.

I believe the Vipers are made in Japan while the Talons are made in China.

The Vipers are a piano-style bin while the talons are open-bridge.

The Vipers are more compact than the Talons.

I agree with Matt.  As far as I have been able to determine the Talon is just the Vortex version of the ZEN ED (commented on profusely here) and the Atlas Intrepid, which is already sold by a Vortex sister company.  It has a slightly different housing, but the same optical system.  It is also the same as the new EO Ranger.
 
I have had Vipers and they do definitely feel smaller and more compact than either the Atlas or ZEN, even though the weight is within just a couple of ounces.
 
If you like fov get the Talon.  If you want smaller but less fov then the Viper.  Be prepared to fork out a couple more C-notes too.
