Yours doesn't sound too bad. Do a search and you will see a ton of posts.
Does yours appear once in a while? Does it ping at low speeds, driving at slow parking lot speeds?
When I took mine in to the dealer, the sound magically went a way.
I can usually shake off the sound by pulling and releasing the hand brake a few times in a row.
I noticed it doesn't exist when the car is cold, so maybe its a small pebble stuck between the brake and the dust cover like said about. It's coming from the drivers front side... and this has been an on going issue for over a year!
