Wireless technologies have greatly improved over the past few years, and we're even starting to see wireless gaming keyboards. They can help reduce the clutter of your desk by getting rid of the cable, which gives off a much cleaner look. However, there are a lot of different types of keyboards, whether they're for the office or playing games.
We've reviewed over 50 keyboards; here are our recommendations for the best wireless keyboards. Also, see our recommendations for the best keyboards and the best mechanical keyboards, and if you're looking for a more gaming-oriented board, check out our recommendations for the best gaming keyboards.
The best wireless mechanical keyboard we've tested so far is the Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED. This keyboard has a fairly unique low-profile design with very short keycaps. Our unit uses GL Tactile switches, but it's also available in GL Clicky and GL Linear switches. It's a very well-built keyboard thanks to its metal frame and double-shot keycaps. It also features a dedicated column of macro keys, which can be very useful for MMO games.
This keyboard has full RGB backlighting and can be customized inside the Logitech G HUB software. Our unit's GL switches offer good tactile feedback with a very low pre-travel distance and a low total-travel distance. It's also quite versatile, as you can connect a device via Bluetooth on top of the one being used with the USB dongle, easily switching between both.
Unfortunately, it doesn't offer the best typing quality, as the low-profile design might take some time to get used to and the ergonomics aren't the best. Nevertheless, if you're looking for one of the best wireless gaming keyboards, this mechanical one is a great option.
If you want a more compact mechanical keyboard, go for the Obinslab Anne Pro 2. It might not have a dedicated USB receiver like the Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED and doesn't have dedicated macro keys, but it's better built and has double-shot PBT keycaps, which should be more durable than the Logitech's ABS keycaps. This keyboard can be connected to four Bluetooth devices simultaneously. Although this is a great gaming keyboard, playing over the Bluetooth connection might not be recommended due to latency, which we don't currently test. Our unit features Gatreon Brown tactile switches, but it's available in a wide variety of Cherry MX, Gatreon, and Kailh switches. Of the keyboards we've tested, it provides one of the best typing quality, although you might need some time to get used to the lack of dedicated arrow keys. It can also be used wired, which should be better for gaming.
If you want the best wireless mechanical keyboard and are looking for the best wireless gaming keyboard we've tested, grab the Logitech, but if you want something a bit smaller and more geared towards keyboard enthusiasts, grab the Obinslab instead.
The best wireless keyboard for office we've tested so far is the Logitech MX Keys. It's a full-size keyboard that has great build quality and unique keycaps that have a circular indentation. The whole frame is made of metal and each key is individually backlit, which is great if you work in dark environments or late at night. You can connect the keyboard to its USB receiver and two other Bluetooth devices, or simply connect to three Bluetooth devices and easily switch between them.
This keyboard features scissor switches that have a very low travel distance but have a nice tactile bump that requires a bit more force to actuate. The spacing of the keys is good and the indentation makes it easier to hit the keys in the center, which helps to reduce typos. The switches are fairly similar to some other keyboards like the Apple Magic Keyboard and the Microsoft Surface Keyboard, with slightly more total travel.
However, it doesn't have any macro programmability, so it might not be ideal for programmers or people that would want a set button to repeat the same actions. On the upside, it works with any operating system and is very versatile.
If you're prone to strain injuries and feel a lot of stress in your wrists when typing all day, an ergonomic keyboard like the Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard might be a better option for you. It might not be as straightforward as the Logitech MX Keys and you'll probably require some time to get used to its design, but these types of keyboards are aimed to reduce the pronation of the wrists and advertise a less painful typing experience. It has a curved split keyboard design, which is unique, and it's very comfortable to use once you get used to it. It has a plushy wrist rest and negative-angled feet to reduce the bend of the wrists. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any backlighting, but this shouldn't be an issue if you mostly use it at work in a well-lit environment. You can use it with its USB receiver or connect up to three devices via Bluetooth, just like the MX Keys.
If you want a more traditional keyboard that's very versatile for the office, grab the MX Keys, but if you want an ergonomic keyboard that could help reduce wrist strain, go for the K860 instead.
If you often work on your phone or tablet and would much prefer having an actual physical keyboard rather than typing on a touchscreen, the best wireless keyboard for mobile devices we've tested so far is the Logitech K380. This Bluetooth keyboard can easily connect to all compatible devices and provides a good typing experience on a very small and portable board.
The switches offer a light typing experience and even if it's very small, the board even includes navigation arrows, which is very useful. You can also connect up to three devices simultaneously and easily switch between them. The board is very quiet and you shouldn't bother people when typing if you need to get some work down at the library or even on the train.
Unfortunately, it lacks backlighting, which would have been useful for late-night workers. The software also doesn't allow for much customization, although it might not be the most needed feature for a mobile device keyboard. This is one of the best Bluetooth keyboards for when you're on the move and it can easily fit in a laptop bag or backpack.
If you have a smart TV or need a wireless keyboard for your living room media PC, the best media keyboard we've reviewed so far is the Corsair K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard. It looks and feels very high-end thanks to its aluminum build. This unique keyboard has an integrated touch pad, a volume wheel, mouse buttons, and even a joystick, so you should be able to navigate menus easily.
The keys are satisfying to type on, although they do feel a bit mushy when compared to other scissor switches we've tested. Each key is also individually backlit, and even the circular touchpad has some backlighting, which is a nice touch. You can use this keyboard wirelessly from your couch via Bluetooth and with its dedicated USB receiver. There are also additional buttons on the top and rear sides of the keyboard.
Unfortunately, our unit's spacebar makes a strange squeaking sound, and we don't know if it's a design flaw or simply an issue with our unit. Also, its ergonomics are not the best and when laying down, it's at a permanent incline as it doesn't have additional incline feet. On the other hand, if you're looking for a single keyboard that can basically do it all and allows you to browse the web, navigate your smart TV, or even be used for couch gaming, this is one of the best wireless keyboards to do so.
The best budget wireless keyboard we've reviewed so far is the Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Wireless Keyboard. This ergonomic keyboard has a curved design and a split key-layout, which might take some time to get used to, but aims to create a more natural typing position for you to type comfortably without wrist pain. The board has a fixed wrist rest that's comfortable, and you can even create a negative angle by using the front feet to reduce the bend of your wrists.
The board is decently well-built for its price point and features typical rubber dome switches. The typing experience on this keyboard has nothing too extraordinary about it, but the split key-layout doesn't take too much time to get used to. It's very quiet to type on, making it a good option for an open-office environment without disturbing surrounding colleagues. It's also quite versatile as it can be connected to two devices simultaneously with its receiver and via Bluetooth.
However, the switch is located under the keyboard, which isn't the most practical spot for quickly changing devices. Also, the keycaps don't feel durable and there's a noticeable wobble to them. Nevertheless, if you're shopping on a tight budget and want an affordable wireless keyboard for the office, this one is a great option.

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best wireless keyboards and the best Bluetooth keyboards for most people.

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.
