Comfort is 99.9% subjective. What's comfortable to me, may not be to someone else. I found the M80's comfortable enough, but I have a strong dislike for on-ear headphones (I hate, hate the feeling of Grados for example, yet own several). The M80's were much more comfortable to wear than the Grados. I found the M80's and AT ESW9A's to be relatively equal on comfort, but for my own feeling, the ESW9A felt better due to the shape of the cups. I actually don't care much for the weird shape of the M80, as it made it difficult to get a good seal for me. Others however, seem to report that they find them completely comfortable, easy to seal, etc. So again, subjective to the point of almost not being worthy of stating it since for every plus, there's a con, in that department.
Build quality of the M80 is excellent.
Build quality of the COP is good. It's an all plastic headphone though pretty much. Built well, but it definitely doesn't feel like a $200(ish) headphone.
The COP is very comfortable when you put velour pads on it (DT770 pads).
The COP had a lot of room to become one of the better `big' portable headphones with bass, but the AKG K267 simply eats it for lunch because the COP's mids are just absolutely disappointing.
