I'd recommend OEM brake pads or Akebono ProACT Ultra-Premium Ceramic brake pads if quiet, easygoing commuting is what you desire. There are some positive reviews out there of the Akebono brake pads for a daily-driver application.
+1 on Akebono pads. Used these on my WRX and they were quiet and dust free. Amazon is a great place to find parts these days.
I haven't had to replace the pads on my XV or Tribeca but they'll both be getting Akebonos when due.
