Is sound sealant or acoustic caulk really different?


Wondering if any permanently flexible caulk like BigStretch is just as good as ones marketed for soundproofing?

Yes, big difference. Big stretch does cure, and the acoustical sealant basically stays as gooey as the day it comes out of the tube, more or less. I've left a blob on my stepladder and put my hand in it a week or two later and it's still just as messy. Miserable stuff to work with but it does what it is supposed to. Don't get the low VOC version as that stiffens up.

Okay! Thanks, Marson! Any brand recommendations? Seems reviews are all over the place. I'll probably need to mail order.

We always used OSI so I don't have anything to compare it to. It's available online, but all I see is the white water based stuff which like I said didn't seem nearly as good as the black oil based.
