If your brakes are in good shape and all hardware is in place and functioning properly there is a trick that I have used several times effectively.
If you haven't checked to make sure everything is ok then you absolutely need to check that first.
If everything checks out ok then you can take your cutoff tool and cut a groove down the middle of the pad itself. Some pads come with a groove already in them and your basically doing the same thing. The noise is from a vibration and changing the pad surface area by cutting into 2 pieces changes the frequency which changes the noise to something less audible if at all.
Do not cut into the metal surface. Only cut the "pad" portion.
