Most brake noise comes from the backing plate on the pads, not the pads themselves. It's caused by the vibration of the pads against the caliber when the brakes are applied. That's why you need to apply brake pad lube to the "backing plates" (NOT THE PAD SURFACE!) where they contact the caliber and on the top and bottom edges of the backing plates (pointy ends) where they slide in the caliber bracket as they wear. It's also important to thoroughly clean the surface on the caliber and bracket that the brake pads contact and slide on with brake clean spray and a rag before installing the pads and brake pad lube. Not saying this is your problem, but I'd start here if it was my bike. Good luck!
