Default Shower aerator? Or something else?

Our shower hose was leaking just inside the shower.

This is the part that is leaking. Pretty sure that it is because the threads are pretty much stripped. I connected the shower hose directly to the fitting coming into the shower and everything seems to work fine. But what is this part, if it is not an aerator, and where can I find a replacement?

Is it a flow restrictor?

Assuming that is in the fitting where it comes from the wall, it is a backflow preventer. Code required for handheld showers so they don't siphon water back to the system when dropped in a tub full. Meaningless in an M380 shower, and cuts flow considerably.

If you know someone who can’t get the soap out of their hair with the original shower head, consider an Oxygenics. Then remove any flow restrictor or back flow preventer to add more force without using extra water. Great for off-grid & boondocking. They sell other more conventional but still very efficient styles. Replaced our OEM head years ago years ago and DW still loves this one.
