Not sure which pads you have, but you may want to review the bed-in procedure with the manufacturer. If they are the Centric Posi-Quiets is see on the irotors web site, noise would be unusual as they are very mild pads. The "ceramic" compound has a lower friction coefficient when compared to semi-metallic pads, so nothing out of the ordinary there.

Also, taking it easy won't lay down a pad transfer layer onto the rotor that is necessary to get all the performance you paid for. A lot of times, depending on many factors (pad material, installation procedure, shims, rotor design, etc.), they will quiet down as well. All standard stuff, but YMMV.
