RUBBISH?? Not efficient?? Bad Frequency response?? I doubt I own the same headphone as you. Something must be wrong with yours.

Comment: The Momentum are getting rave reviews generally. That of course doesn't mean you have to like them. However, since this is your FIRST post and you are blasting a specific headphone that is widely respected, there are a few options:
- you have a bad Momentum (or a fake one? there are quite a few out there) that is not representative
- you really don't like their signature, which would be very surprising but is totally OK
- the seal is not proper
- they are not driven properly (also surprising as they are very easy to drive)
- you want to troll (since this is your first post) - but I assume this is not the case
What's your source? What's your amp/dac? What songs/formats did you listen to?
Maybe there is an explanation. But in general they receive extremely good reviews. I also LOVE them and all the above headphones are in my collection and not sold, so do listen to a few every week for some hours and the Momentum managed to stay in my rotation since I got them. VERY comfortable, lovely sound signature to my taste, detailed but not harsh, a joy to listen to.
