I need a Vocal Booth Makeover

So i currently have my vocal booth setup with 6 inch bass traps with filled with rockwool. i have 2 on the back wall behind the mic and one on each opposing wall. My mic has a reflection filter on it.
( which does absolutely nothing ) and i have some foam hovered above like an idiot. The room size is 7x5.5x8. i want to say that this room can be used to cut some good vocals but im just looking at it all wrong. hopefully someone can see what i can't and help me out a bit.

I guess I'll have to figure this one out on my own

maybe share some tracks you have recorded there or describe what it is that you don't like about the recording.

it's easy to speculate about things to change just by looking, but that information is useless without having more info from you.

Just some general (not-very-professional! ) ideas:

-Replace the foam over head with maybe 4" thick traps like the ones you have on the walls. You can suspend them, leaving a 6 inch space between trap and ceiling.
-Get rid of the reflexion filter.
-Do you have anything on the rear wall? That should be trapped as well.
-The biggest issue with small rooms is bass build-up. If you have time/resources to do it, add corner traps, preferably corner "chunks".
