that looks very comfy, leather must be a good thing to get some high freq reflections

Reflections that early are not desirable, ideally they want to late and diffused

I agree with scottjoplin, early reflections are no bueno. ddim yn dda. not good.

One thing you could maybe look at is the rest of the room, add diffusers based upon your listening spot.

As suggested I eliminate, or reduce any reflection that is coming from in front of me.

i have a narrow bookshelf full of stuff behind the sofa, i thought it to bring some diffusion instead of a bare wall, maybe it works more like an damper then a diffusor?

I use speaker directivity and some absorption in the front half.

However, when sitting up the sofa just soaks up to much high frequencies, the sound gets to dry
It may be a vertical directivity issue. When you're sitting up, you're at the null. When you're lying down, you're at the peak of the lobe.
