Is it possible to apply live reverb or hall effect to all media that is played on linux, and how?

I know how to apply an effect to a single file but I want to add a reverb effect at a low-level that this is applied to all audio played on linux (browser, file, ...).

If your programs support pulseaudio (which is a standard presently), you can use PulseEffects. It has various effects available, including reverb.
