The thing about Super Reviews, from what I can tell, is he thinks a fair amount of aspects in the audiophile hobby are placebo. He even had t-shirts made. So tbh, I'm not sure something like musicality or engagement is a facet he's considering when reviewing IEMs. It's generally not something he brings up in reviews. Or at the very least, those things are derived from engineering the tuning, distortion, and technicalities, not something different or distinct from those standard talking points. Like this IEM is "fun" because it has some bass lift. He's probably not going to say something is "lush" or "chocolatey", even though I'd describe sound that way sometimes. It's hard to ask someone what they think about something they're not even sure exists like you might think it does.
