Custom Sound For Remote Notification

I have to set custom sound when I receive APN in my iOS app.
For custom sound I mean a sound that every user can change within his app and not different from the default sound.
I already know that I can set the attribute "sound" on the payload of my notifications, but what I would like to understand if there is a way to play a different sound based on the user's settings (user A can set sound1.aiff, user B can set sound2.aiff).

The only way that I can see is that the notification is already sent with the name of the file to play that the user has set on preferences: this means that I have to store settings on server-side. Now I do not this.
Do you confirm me that's the only way?

Not an ideal solution, but this might work for you...

Send a silent notification instead. When your app receives the silent notification, check the user’s settings and post a local notification with the desired sound.
