The brake pads in my Nissan Navara only last 10,000 miles - where can I find better quality ones?

I can't find anywhere that sells front brake pads for my Nissan Navara. I would prefer to get better than standard, as they are rubbish and have not lasted much more than 10,000 miles. None of the big car part places list anything.

I've spoken to Nissan and been told there is only one type of Navara brake pad; however, as of November 2017 the material of these pads was updated to counteract a high frequency noise – it is worth trying the new style if you haven’t had the pads replaced since this date as it may help with any early life wear concerns.
