Impossible to answer in the abstract,

Look up the two data sheets and compare parameters to see the differences.

Then look at the schematic how part is used, and see if the parameter differences matter.

I compared data and seems to be pretty much the same
but in my case I would like to get some opinions about the 2SC4408/2SA1680
Numbers are one thing, the ear another one!
