Termination of Service for the
Cloud Listening Device “Listnr”


Cerevo Inc., an Internet connected consumer electronics manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan, announces that it will end the provision of services for the smart microphone “Listnr” at 23:59 on 15th March 2019 (JST).


Listnr is a compact IoT device that was launched in January 2016 and was developed based on the concept of “emotions become colors.” Equipped with wireless LAN connectivity and a microphone, Listnr collects sounds and uploads them to the cloud for analysis in real time on a dedicated server. In addition, Listnr can detect emotions from infant voices by using the sound recognition engine “xauris” which was developed based on technology provided by Panasonic Corporation.

As a result of last year’s sales discontinuation and low levels of Listnr usage activity, Cerevo will stop the connection function with “xauris” today, and all Listnr related services will stop on Friday, March 15 at 23:59 (JST).

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this termination of service and thank everyone who has used Listnr. We appreciate your patronage and will continue considering the development of home appliances that enrich our lives.

For any questions about Listnr, please contact us via email below.

*Our support center is located in Japan, so replies will be sent during Japanese business hours (Japanese timezone is UTC+9).

*Our support center is closed on Japanese holidays.

*We currently do not offer phone support.
