Koss Spark Plug, and Koss The Plug Metallic Edition - whats the difference?

Hi all

I'm looking to buy either one of these for the Ipod for general
'in-office' and also bedtime listening, but am not a big fan of
earphones as I generally find them uncomfortable for the ears
and also find they easily slip out of the ear at slight head movement.

So my questions are:

Whats the difference between Koss The Plug: Metallic Edition
and Koss Spark Plug earphones?

Are the Koss earphones comfortable to the inner ear?

Do they fall out of the ear easily?

How often do you have to replace the earbud gel, and can you buy
replacement gel easily from shops?

I have the Spark Plugs you mention - the foam is very pliable and you roll it between thumb & forefinger before popping them into your ear - the foam then expands to fit snugily in your ear - they are comfortable & havent popped out on me tho' I'm only walking with mine in
Soundwise I was quite impressed for the money but they are VERY bassy so u need some sort of bass management on your source or I'd give them a miss ...
HTH - Paul ;)
PS - They come with 2 sets of pads - not sure how long they'd last - I've had mine for about 3 months but dont use them every day ...
