I think the reset is no more than a reboot.
When I tried this as instructed by Bose, nothing appeared to change, no setting changed and all paired devices remained.
It would be nice if it were more obvious that the reset worked, reset setting/pairing etc.

I tried to do the steps explained by Hector B and now my headphones cant be turned on. Nothing happens. And of course I´ve put the headphones in the charger for an hour so it wouldnt be the reason that the battery was empty. The headphones just wont start now.
Welcome to the community, we thank you for taking the time to write in. I am so sorry to hear that your Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 no longer appear to be powering on.
What I would recommend is that you contact your regions Bose product support team for further assistance in regards to this. Please follow this link, select your region and scroll down to "Contact Us". There you will find the appropriate contact information and an agent will happily assist you further.
I also tried the reset procedure because the voice speaking in the headphones suddenly spoke slower and is not as comprehensible as it was at first ( happened after I configured Google assistant ) I could not reset the device with the procedure, the blue light doesn't blink. The procedure is not very explicit. Shoud the headphones be off or on starting it ? How long should we wait for the blue light to blink ? How can we confirm the device has successfully reset ? It's also a pity we cannot reset the device from the app.
Tried again and again could not power up the device. One workaround is to keep the power button pushed and then connect the usb c cable.

Aslo struggling to reset the headphones. They are really not intuitive. The fact the instruction manual online that is 52 pages long is rediculous!
