Wireless technologies have greatly improved over the past few years, and we're even starting to see wireless gaming keyboards. They can help reduce your desk's clutter by getting rid of the cable, which gives off a much cleaner look. However, there are many different keyboards, whether they're for the office or playing games.
We've tested over 130 keyboards, and here are our recommendations for the best wireless keyboards. Also, check out our recommendations for the best keyboards, the best mechanical keyboards, and the best gaming keyboards.
The best wireless mechanical keyboard we've tested is the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro. You can use this full-size model wirelessly via its USB receiver or Bluetooth, and you can pair it with up to three devices at once. It has two incline settings, a detachable plushy wrist rest, and customizable RGB backlighting with individually lit keys.
It's available with clicky Razer Green and linear Razer Yellow switches. The Razer Green switches on our unit feel light and have a short pre-travel distance, making it a responsive choice for gaming. Also, it has incredibly low latency when used with its wire or USB receiver, and it's still amazing even over Bluetooth. It has dedicated media keys and a volume control wheel, and all of its keys are macro programmable.
Unfortunately, there's some wobble to the larger keys, like the Spacebar, Enter, Backspace, and Shift keys. Also, the keycaps are ABS plastic, which are prone to develop shine from finger oils. That said, this is still an incredible mechanical board if you want a wireless model, and it's among the best gaming keyboards we've tested.
If you'd prefer an option that takes up less space, consider the Obinslab Anne Pro 2. While it doesn't have dedicated media keys or a volume wheel, and it lacks the incline settings and wrist rest that the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro has, it's a 60% compact board that can pair with up to four devices via Bluetooth. It has fully customizable RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys, but it isn't great at color mixing, so white tends to look pink. It's available in several Cherry MX, Gateron, and Kailh switches, so you can get the feel you want, and it has incredibly low latency.
If you're looking for a full-sized board with dedicated media keys and better ergonomics, go with the Razer; however, if you're looking for a compact option that can pair with more devices at once, get the Obinslab.
The Logitech MX Keys is the best wireless keyboard for office use that we've tested. This full-size keyboard has a small footprint due to its thin borders, giving you more space for other office supplies on your desk. Its frame is metal, and the keys are made of dense, good-quality plastic, making the keyboard feel quite sturdy overall.
It can wirelessly connect with up to three devices via Bluetooth or its proprietary USB receiver, and it's quiet enough to use in noise-sensitive environments. Typing feels great and shouldn't cause fatigue with extended use, and while its scissor switches have a very short travel distance, the tactile bump and the indentations on the keys should help prevent typos. It also has full white backlighting that automatically turns on when in dark environments.
Unfortunately, its ergonomics are only decent, as it's a straight keyboard with no incline settings and no wrist rest. Also, the Logitech Options software is somewhat disappointing in terms of customization options, though it's likely good enough for most daily or office uses. All in all, this is a very good option for the office, and it's one of the best keyboards for writers that we've tested.
If you want a more ergonomic option, consider the Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard. It doesn't have any backlighting, and it uses two AAA batteries instead of a rechargeable one like the Logitech MX Keys, but it has an ergonomic curved shape with a fixed wrist rest. It has a split key layout, and its feet create a negative incline; both of these are designed to reduce wrist strain, but we don't test this. Its scissor switches require quite a bit of force to get over the tactile bump, so they may feel heavy and cause a bit of finger fatigue.
If you're looking for a straight, low-profile board with backlighting, go with the MX Keys, but if you want a more ergonomic shape with a fixed wrist rest and a split key layout, get the ERGO K860.
The best Bluetooth keyboard for mobile devices that we’ve tested is the Logitech K380. It’s an excellent portable keyboard that you can use with almost any device with Bluetooth and is quiet enough for any environment. Its 65% compact design makes it very lightweight, and it's small enough to fit into most bags, so it should be easy to carry around.
It connects simultaneously with up to three devices via Bluetooth and doesn't come with a proprietary USB receiver. The circular keys are stable, and typing quality feels good, with the keys feeling light even though there's a tactile bump before actuation. The keyboard has a very short height, and the keys are low profile, so typing should be comfortable for extended periods without a wrist rest. You can also use the companion software to reprogram a few function keys to a list of preset functions, and it has media hotkeys.
Sadly, it doesn't have any backlighting, so you can't easily use it in a dark room, and the companion software doesn't have too many customization options. The build quality is only decent with some flex to it, though it should be fine for normal use. That said, if you want a compact wireless keyboard to use with a tablet or mobile device, the Logitech is an excellent choice.
The best wireless keyboard for TV that we've tested is the Logitech K400 Plus. This wireless model has a built-in trackpad, which is especially useful for home theater PC setups since you won't need a mouse to navigate the computer's interface. Also, there's a left-click button on the top left so you can navigate the trackpad with your right thumb and click with your left.
Using the Logitech Options software, you can remap some of the function keys by choosing from a list of presets. It has media hotkeys and dedicated volume control buttons to quickly increase, decrease, or mute the TV's audio. It uses rubber dome switches, which provides tactile feedback, although pressing keys feel a bit mushy. However, they're very quiet to type on, which is great for noise-sensitive environments.
Unfortunately, it's missing features that some other HTPC keyboards have, but this is a consequence of its more affordable cost. If you can find it, the Corsair K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard has a ton more features, like Bluetooth support and white backlighting, but it's harder to find available. That said, if you don't care about either of those features, the Logitech should do the job.
The best wireless keyboard we've tested in the budget category is the Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Wireless Keyboard. This full-size model has a split-key layout with a fixed wrist rest and feet that create a negative incline. You can pair it wirelessly with two devices via Bluetooth and with its USB receiver.
Its rubber dome switches have a tactile bump that requires some force to get over but otherwise feel fairly light to type on. They also have a short pre-travel distance which results in a responsive feel. While the layout of the keys might take some time to get used to, you shouldn't feel too much fatigue when typing for long periods. The keyboard is very quiet, so it shouldn't bother people around you, even if you're in a noise-sensitive environment.
Unfortunately, it doesn't have any companion software, so you can't customize the keyboard. Also, the keys feel fairly mushy and wobbly, and the board has a lot of flex to it. There's no backlighting, so it's not ideal to use in darker environments. Nevertheless, this is a great wireless keyboard if you're on a budget, and it's one of the best ergonomic keyboards we've tested.

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best wireless keyboards and the best Bluetooth keyboards for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper product wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no keyboard that is difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).
If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of all our wireless keyboard reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no product is perfect for every use, most keyboards are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them. Be sure to know your key switch preferences before choosing.
