Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between Klip K-Boom and Luxilon Big Banger?

Besides the fact that Big Banger is a fair bit more expensive

I have played with both and feel they are pretty much the same.

I have played with both extensively and given a choice, I would go with KBOOM. Kboom is softer, and lasts about 20% longer and tension retension is superior. ALU plays great for the first 2 hours or so, but then the tension loss can be great and they will start to feel springy. I find Kboom to be almost the opposite. It plays better after an hour and then retains tension very well for at least 8-10 hours. But rather than get springy, I feel that it starts to feel boardy and I lose feel. I usually cut them out after 10 hours of play.
just my 2 cents...
