You have submitted four samples of water massage, pulsating shower heads that are made of plastic. They are identified as model numbers JM-320, JM-321, JM-350 and JM-351. The shower heads have three settings: regular spray, pulsating spray and combination spray. These shower heads may be hand-held or wall mounted.

Model number JM-320 is a plastic shower head with a chrome finish. Model number JM-321 is a white shower head made of plastic. These shower heads are packaged separately without a hose or mounting brackets.
