Though from the sentence you can tell it should be 'komforta', in the audio it really sounds like 'komforto' to me

since you point it out, i agree.

I've noticed this often happens to the speaker if the sentence ends with an -a.

Duo, vi granda bebo... Estas aŭ la malnova matraco aŭ la planko, via elekto

So does 'komforti' mean "to comfort", as in "when you are sad, I will comfort you" "Kiam vi estas malfelicxa, mi komfortos vin" Is this correct?

No, „to comfort“ would be „komfortigi“. Fakte en via ekzemplo mi dirus „kiam vi estos malfeliĉa, mi konsolos vin“.

Is "The old mattress is not quite comfortable" a wrong translation?
