In brief: Amplified
When you yawn, the eustacheon tub running from the back of the throat to the ear opens.
This amplifies the sound into a bigger cavity.

In brief: Your ears pop
When you yawn, you also pop your ears.
This may make sounds a little louder just from the equalized pressure in your ears.
