Skype for Business crashes upon USB device usage

I can call and use Skype for business on my laptop, with the default audio device. But when I plug in my BT 600 (Plantronics 8200) the client crashes.

This just recently surfaced after an update, so I was wondering if a previously known bug was re-introduced as I have seen older posts on the same subject.

My setup is a Windows 10 prerelease 17063 with Office c2r 16.0.8730 

Kind regards,
