Default new pads and rotors noise

I feel like a jack *** and I've searched and figured I would find something but nothing seems to match my conditions. I just recently installed ebc green stuff with new rotors. I broke them in as recommended doing about 10 60-15mph hard brake stops back to back.(smelt aweful like it should) My problem doesn't seem to be inhibiting performance but when I slow down at high speeds I am getting a shurrrrrrr noise sounds like brake fluid spitting out of a leaky line. I checked the lines and the reservoir and everything checks out good. This just started after driving the car a week without the noise that I can remember.

EDIT the more I look into the more I found that the EBC pads have a long *** break in period. My guess is I wore through the break in coating and now I have to actually break in the rest of the pad. Whatever just got scrrred cause I dont want my brakes to break. haha

Are these for use on the street? I'd suggest the EBC yellow for track use. I've never had any issues with noise or breaking in the EBC yellows.

I planned on uploading after I got the car back on the road. Last night I swapped out the shitty FM rubber oil return hose for a AN one. Also got rid of the egr system. I can try and record with my shitty phone. I may have to zip tie it to the upper control arm to get the best sound with least amount of wind.

I figured that its because they are slotted and drilled. So when I am slowing down the whistle a little at high speeds. I only hear it on the highway or above 40+ mph. Thanks for reminding me to follow up
