This may be of interest and I think there is another topic about hissing sound recently in the forum that is solved, but I don't find it - it was fixed with the microphone lever in alsamixer I think (remembered that when I saw alsamixer below)
Gneral solutions for sound

This topic contains links to all (?) the really good solutions for sound in Mint
If you have Intel HDA sound take a look here first
If you want more help please include lspci and which Mint you use
And don't forget to go through all your settings
Right click the speaker next to the clock and check settings as well as any other settings you may find and also open a terminal and start alsamixer from it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
