I had the same noise from my brake, and when I took it to the dealer, the tech said brake pad was visually fine. I wasn't about to leave so I told him to check again so he took off the right brake, and said about 70% left which means left should be the same. I said no no take off the left brake, and he did. Turns out the left brake pad was cracked in half, and was rubbing against the rotor oddly. So braking actually kinda silences the noise, while slow idling makes noise. Sounded like metal grinding. Maybe you have the same problem. I had to end up replacing the rotor also.
