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 60 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. It has quite a unique look and design with its very short keycaps and low-profile switches. The build quality is great thanks to its metal frame with minimal flex and doubleshot ABS keycaps. It also features full RGB lighting that's easily customizable inside the Logitech G HUB software.
Our unit uses GL Tactile brown switches, but this board also comes in GL Linear and GL Clicky switches, so make sure to choose your favorite switches as it has a great impact on your overall typing experience. This wireless keyboard can be used with its USB receiver and via Bluetooth. It's very easy to switch between both devices with a single touch of a button. The board also has dedicated media keys which are great to control your music and volume quickly.
Unfortunately, the typing quality isn't the best due to the low-profile keys. It also lacks a wrist rest for a more comfortable experience, but some people might not need one due to the low-profile design. Overall, this is a unique and great keyboard that can be used for both gaming and everyday use.
If you want a more compact mechanical keyboard, go for the Obinslab Anne Pro 2. This 60% wireless keyboard might not use a dedicated USB receiver and doesn't have dedicated macro keys like the Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED, but some might like its Bluetooth multi-device pairing. While our unit has Gateron Brown switches, this keyboard is available in a large variety of Cherry MX, Gateron, and Kailh mechanical switches, so you can easily choose your preferred ones. This is also one of the better-built keyboards we've reviewed thanks to a very solid frame and durable doubleshot PBT keycaps. It provides a great overall typing experience, although some people might not like the lack of dedicated arrow keys. On the upside, it has full RGB lighting and an easy-to-navigate software that lets you customize the board to your preference.
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.
The best wireless keyboard for office we've tested so far is the Logitech MX Keys. This is a modern-looking keyboard that's decently comfortable to type on and its scissor switches provide great typing experience while keeping noise to a minimum, making it a good choice for quiet offices. It has a built-in rechargeable battery, backlighting, and its excellent multi-device pairing feature lets you pair up to three devices simultaneously to make multitasking a breeze. The function keys are programmable, but it's limited to presets and you can't set any macros, which is disappointing.
The typing experience on this keyboard is very good. The scissor switches have a low travel distance, making them feel extremely responsive, and aside from the slight wobble on the spacebar, most keys are stable. The keys are well-spaced and the keycaps have a circular indentation that can help with typing accuracy. It doesn't have any incline settings and doesn't come with a wrist rest, but most people should be fine without one due to the keyboard's low profile.
If you work on Windows or macOS, you should be happy to hear that it's fully compatible with these operating systems, including having software support for customization. However, Logitech's Options software has very few options and although you can save profiles, you can only do so per application. Other than that, this is a great office keyboard that most people should be satisfied with.
If you're concerned about repetitive stress injuries and you want an ergonomic keyboard instead, then take a look at the Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard. It has scissor switches that feel very much like the Logitech MX Keys, but the keyboard is split into two halves and it has reverse incline settings, which are both meant to promote a more natural typing position. It has the same excellent multi-device pairing feature, but unfortunately, it runs on disposable batteries and there's no backlighting. The function keys can be reprogrammed most keys function properly with various operating systems, desktop or mobile.
Overall, if you prefer a straight keyboard or you need backlighting, then go with the MX Keys, but if you need better ergonomics, then the ERGO K860 Wireless is the one to get.
The best wireless keyboard for mobile devices we've tested so far is the Logitech K380. If you often work on your phone or tablet and would much prefer having an actual physical keyboard rather than typing on a touchscreen, this is a great option. 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. It looks and feels very high-end thanks to its aluminum build. This unique keyboard has an integrated touchpad, 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 is nothing too extraordinary, 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.
