    Dead-stretching from 7/16" to 1/2" is a substantially bigger jump than from 1/2" to 9/16". And no, it isn't more difficult, as going up 1/16" at a time will keep you going up approximately 1mm at a time. If your ears aren't naturally stretchy, it's often advised to stop at odd-sized sizes for a few months (15mm after 9/16", 17mm after 5/8", etc.)
    But..1/2=8/16, 7/16ths to 8/16ths is the same as 8/16ths to 9/16ths---1/16th of an inch!
    Or are the larger sizes based on metric and the US units are just approximates?
