Which brake pads?

I have a voodoo hoodoo (2012) with tektro auriga comp brakes, they work perfectly well, especially compared to the brakes on a few friends bicycles. But at some point in the near future will need new pads, so whats the crack?

Shall I just pick up the oem pads from halfords/CRC etc? Or are there more powerful/better alternatives. I only ask as I know on my track motorcycle there are many many compounds/brands to choose from in brake pads that are better than ones that come with the bikes as standard

dual sintered
carbon ceramic

giving varying power/feel characteristics and working better in different conditions.

Are the same options available in the bicycle world?

Much obliged!
