Get the HD800 connectors and head down to LHS at Sim Lim Tower.

Best bang for your buck.

Using M40X w/ Modmic and also have Swans M10. Is there any hope for me If I wanted better sound. Any affordable desktop dac/headphone amp I could try? What would be the best route. :/

An affordable upgrade would be the Schiit stack magni and modi, will provide an overall improvement. If u are nt looking for a stack, perhaps a grace design m9xx amp/dac?

I bought three of the magnetic filters, one for DAC's power supply, one for amp's power supply, one for speakers' power supply.

Let's see this helps reduce or eliminate clicking sounds

Curious to see the outcome of the deployment of those filters. The cause of the issue you face could lie elsewhere, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
