Of course the cup quality will not change due to the shape. The circular ones are just easier to maneuver a pouring kettle around. I bought several boxes of the square ones on sale for $5 a box, so I just cut them into a circle by rounding off the top edge of the folded filter before opening it. Comes out exactly like the circular filters. I find the uncut square filters impossible to use as a pourover because you have to hold the kettle too high.

I agree. The handblown ones are deeper, do the filter gets to the upper edge of the Chemex, making it harder to grab on to. However the ease of getting closer to the coffee bed is an important advantage.
