Question brake pads

I could use some input in this dept. I'm looking for a suitable replacement for the front pads on my Tl1000r. This is the third set I've gone through and have found the oem pads to be the best compromise between rotor wear/ longevity/performance. The problem with the stock pads is the price. I'm tired of dishing out twice as much as aftermarket. Is there an aftermarket double H pad that is equal to oem in the areas above? I've tried ebc pads and you could hear them grinding the metal off the rotors with noise that made my hair stand on end. The bike gets used as dual purpose, commuting during the week, and canyon carving on the weekend, so I need a pad that doesn’t need to be smoking hot for peak performance. Is it possible for oem performance at aftermarket price?
