In my case Skype, Skype for Business and Teams all have issues, the primary being the auto-shut off frustration as the headphones can't detect that they are in use. So +1 for that point.
I personally haven't had pairing issues or other audio issues, but the timeout took me a while to figure out as it defaulted to 5 minutes, had quite a few difficult calls at the start 😁

I am seeing the skpe issues with my headset, please refer following comments:
Hope this addressed at the earliest or people will start thinking about alternatives.
Please listen to your customers and make that as a priority#1. Hope to hear from you at the earliest.

Think it is a Windows problem, and not just Skype. Same behavior with Zoom, Slack, etc.
The headset simply isn't enterprise ready. For a premium product, that is simply unacceptable.

Is it possible to use the NC 700 as a wired headset by connecting the USB-C cable to a USB port on the PC/Mac? That would be a great & simple solution! If it’s not possible now, maybe it could be considered for a future firmware update?
About half my calls are Skype calls and I’d love to use the NC 700 for those calls.
It might be possible as a wired headset. I haven’t tried, mainly because I paid a premium for the 700s as a wireless headset. There are cheaper options if you don’t mind a wired headset. Why pay $400 when you can get decent wired noise canceling headphone for less than half that price?
I have completed the update and the only discernible difference is the 700s now allow you to change the auto off feature when no motion is detected. Perhaps there is some background fine tuning of the software but it has not improved connectivity on Skype calls or prevented the random dropping of a second connected Bluetooth device while on the middle of a call.
In the end, with all the complaints about the 700s and utter lack of response from Bose I feel obligated to get the word out that people should not waste their money on Bose. Look at Sony or Jabra both appear to offer functional products with much better customer support.

I had the same issue with notifications. I managed to solve it by switching off windows sounds, skype sounds and outlook sounds. It is not ideal but works for me.
Hope it helps.
Hi. Joining this thread as I also can't hear sound when I use my the NC 700 headphones for Skype / Hangout etc calls. I can listen to other audio from my computer fine. It worked for the first few weeks of having the headphones but now its stopped. Very frustrating as its the main reason I bought the headphones. I'm using Windows 10. I've tried the troubleshooting suggestions in this thread but no improvement. Bose - where are you??????
I have found out that if I have my microphone as output then my headphones work for input. But as soon as I change my headphones to output then they no longer work for input as well. Please someone help ?? Thanks
