NC 700 using microphone with audio cable
As touched upon in https://community.bose.com/t5/Around-On-Ear-Headphones/QC-700-Wired-Connection/m-p/224164 the audio cable *may* not work with input.
Does this mean it *could* work? If not, why not include a TRRS cable? As noted by other posts, the headphones are useless for wireless conferencing on a Windows computer due to bluetooth protocol issues, and the USB port is for charging only.
I would think that makes it all the more important that the audio cable, at least, works. I have a headset port on my laptop, which should work for both input and output. When connecting the NC 700, Windows prompt me to specify the device type, and I select "Headset (with microhpone)".
This gives me the output device "Speakers / Headphones (Realtek High Definition Audio)", which works well.
I also get an input device, "Jack Mic (Realtek High Definition Audio)", which is silent. I recorded from that device in Audacity and there is nothing.
Does the NC 700 support mic over audio cable? If so, why ever ship an audio cable without that support?
