I do *not* experience this issue on GNOME.

I presume you are using %desktop-services in your configuration.

When you run:

guix environment --ad-hoc alsa-utils

Is the volume turned off or is the sound card muted?  You can mute and
unmute with the M key and select your sound card with the F6 key.

There also is a program `speaker-test` in alsa-utils for basic testing.
