For p[0,1], the generalized Seiffert mean of two positive numbers a and b is defined by Sp(a,b)=p(a-b)/arctan[2p(a-b)/(a+b)],  0<p1,  ab;  (a+b)/2,  p=0,  ab;  a,  a=b. In this paper, we find the greatest value α and least value β such that the double inequality Sα(a,b)<T(a,b)<Sβ(a,b) holds for all a,b>0 with ab, and give new bounds for the complete elliptic integrals of the second kind. Here, T(a,b)=(2/π)0π/2a2cos2θ+b2sin2θdθ denotes the Toader mean of two positive numbers a and b.
