Are K&N oil filters worth it?

Just curious if these are even worth it? The price is nice but other than that, how well do they filter?

They look like red Densos Toyota OEM YZZA1 style filters. I would not image they were all that bad on filtering as these are not touted for high flow, high performance applications. Surprisingly good value for a high performance name brand. The denso filter from Toyota are not ranked high on filtering either by the way. Good enough for OEM, good enough for me.

Nope. Just use your Honda or Toyota OEM filters purchased from a dealership. Cheap and they filter just fine.

No. K&N built their reputation on flow, not efficiency. Your engine probably won't blow up, but still I say no. Use the OEM filter or another reputable brand, too many good ones at around the same price.
