Unless you're looking for trick answers, then generally no. If you're thinking of something that causes a listener to perceive some neurologic stimulus as sound, like people experiencing synesthesia, then maybe. But not the traditional propagation of sound, which creates internal/external pressure differences that cause the eardrum to deflect. If you were in low-earth orbit, and earth exploded, then some of its atmosphere might blast past you and cause those audible pressure differences. Were you looking for an answer in a different context?

Additional consideration: If you opened up your ear to the vacuum of space, the rest of your body would probably spew out through the hole, due to the relative pressure a spacesuit would be applying to keep the rest of your body functioning.
