Where can I find acoustic putty pad for receptacles?

Looking to soundproof a common wall in one of the rooms and wondering where can I find those soundproofing putty pads for receptacles? I can't seem to find them in HD, Lowes?

You did look on the site you referenced for "Where to Buy" eh?

Will definitely check this out. I think any of them would do the job. Thanks

I wonder if anyone have used the SilentFX drywall for soundproofing? I know many have recommended the QuietRock drywall but almost no one carries it but the SilentFX.

Yikes! That stuff is spendy.
Have you considered Green Glue? I used it on a common wall in a 1900 era row house with surprisingly good results. Devil's in the details with any soundproofing job, though.

The crappy part is that the wall + baseboard that I am trying to soundproof is only an inch from a floor register. Putting up 2 x 5/8" drywall with green glue will extend beyond the vent opening on the floor. Unless there's an alternate way to do this?

Ya, that's a tough one, from a 'simple fix' point of view. It's not an impossible thing to move a duct, but if your skill set is reasonable, and you have a desire to learn, it's not that big a deal.
