While I love Shimano, the SRAM S500 levers are really comfortable in the hand and brake very nicely. I know for a while you could get DA level brake levers on their own but I guess they have discontinued them but you can find old 7400 levers on various online marketplaces for used stuff and those are probably pretty similar (from the pictures I have seen of the newer DA levers and my use of the 7400s)

As mentioned before TRP and Cane Creek also make some nifty levers but my faves are probably always going to be the Sram levers.
