OBE is better. Officer of the British Empire, rather than "mearly" a Member of the British Empire. Neither entitle you to be named "Sir", that can only be used with a knighthood, i.e. a KBE (Knight Commander) or GBE (Knight Grand Cross). All of these are an "Order of the British Empire", just different levels.

As far as what exactly each mean, I have no idea.
