1. A method, comprising:

  • at an electronic device with one or more processors and memory;

    receiving an audio signal that includes a voice of a near-end user of the electronic device when a voice-related feature of the electronic device is in use;

    suppressing noise in the audio signal using the electronic device while substantially preserving the voice of the near-end user based at least in part on user-specific noise suppression parameters,wherein the user-specific noise suppression parameters are based at least in part on a user noise suppression preference,wherein the user noise suppression preference is based on a user selection between a first filtered audio signal generated by applying a first set of noise suppression parameters to a test audio signal and a second filtered audio signal generated by applying a second set of noise suppression parameters to the test audio signal, andwherein the test audio signal includes speech of the near-end user and one or more distracters, the test audio signal being output by the electronic device responsive to receiving a user input indicating initiation of a voice training mode of the electronic device; and

    transmitting the audio signal to a remote device for receipt by a far-end user.
