Congratulations to Bart C. of Sherman Oaks, Calif., for winning 12 Cree LED light bulbs in last week's giveaway and to Shawn S. of Sewickley, Penn., for winning a prize pack from mobile-accessories maker Tech21 the week before that.

This week's winner gets a pair of Grado SR80e on-ear, open-back headphones, which "sound exceptionally good for $100 and are also comfortable to wear," according to David Carnoy's recent CNET review.

The 'phones are the next-gen version of Grado's SR80 Prestige Series and are easily among the best-sounding headphones you can get for less than $100, David says.
