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's an outstanding gaming keyboard packed with features that both casual and serious gamers should appreciate. It's also a really well-built keyboard as it has a metal frame with double-shot ABS keycaps.
It's available in either tactile, linear, or clicky switches, and it's also available in a TenKeyLess (TKL) size, although we tested the full-sized variant with tactile switches. The switches have a low profile, which is ideal for gaming but may cause some errors while typing. The keyboard has full RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys, which you can customize through the Logitech G HUB software. It also has multi-device pairing with up to two devices at once: one via Bluetooth and the other via its proprietary receiver.
There are five dedicated macro keys on the left side, but sadly, those are the only keys you can set macros to. You can save up to three profiles for those macros, and switching between them is super easy, so in reality, you can set up to 15 macros. The keyboard doesn't come with a wrist rest, but luckily, the feet have two incline settings. Overall, this is a very good choice for anybody looking for the best wireless mechanical keyboard.
If you want to save some space on your desk and prefer a compact 60% keyboard, then the Obinslab Anne Pro 2 is a great choice. It doesn't have any incline settings like the Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED, but instead, all keys are macro programmable on this keyboard. It also has full RGB backlighting and it has multi-device pairing with up to four devices via Bluetooth. This keyboard is available in a wide variety of switches, but our unit has the Gateron Brown switches. They have a fair amount of pre-travel distance, but overall, offer good tactile feedback and the typing experience is excellent. Sadly, due to its small size, it doesn't have many extra features like media keys or a Windows Key Lock, but this is expected from a small keyboard.
Overall, the best wireless mechanical keyboard we've tested so far is the Logitech, but if you want a compact keyboard on which you can set macros to any key, the Obinslab is a good alternative.
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.
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. It has white backlighting and its multi-device pairing feature lets you pair up to three devices simultaneously to make multitasking a breeze.
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. The function keys are also programmable, but it's limited to presets and you can't set any macros, which is disappointing. 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 and most keys function properly with various operating systems, desktop or mobile.
Overall, if you prefer a straight keyboard or you need backlighting, then consider with the MX Keys, but if you need better ergonomics, then the ERGO K860 Wireless is a great choice too.
The best wireless keyboard for mobile devices we've tested so far is the Logitech K380. It's great if you often need to work from a tablet or a smartphone and would much prefer having a physical keyboard instead of typing on a touchscreen. It's very small and can easily fit in a backpack, which makes it quite convenient to bring wherever you need it to go.
The board features light scissor switches that offer nice tactile feedback, and the low profile of the board makes it quite comfortable to type on for an extended period. It can also be connected to up to three devices via Bluetooth, and you have three function buttons on the board to seamlessly switch between them.
However, the board feels a bit plasticky and doesn't offer many customization options. Also, it lacks backlighting, so it won't be ideal if you need to get work done later at night or in darker environments. Nevertheless, if you're looking for a portable option, this is one of the best wireless keyboards for mobile devices we've seen.
If you have a smart TV or need a wireless keyboard for your living room media PC, then 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 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 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 aren't 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, this is one of the best wireless keyboards to do so.
The best wireless keyboard in the budget category we've tested so far is the Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Wireless Keyboard. It's a straightforward keyboard that's limited on many extra features, but it's still a great choice for office use, and it doesn't cost all that much.
Like the Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard, this has a split keyboard, ergonomic design. When you raise the feet underneath the wrist rest, it gives the keyboard an incline setting, which is supposed to relieve tension on your wrists, although this isn't something we test for. It has rubber dome switches which have a fairly low profile and offer a decent overall typing quality, and it doesn't get tiring typing on this keyboard. You can connect this keyboard with two devices at once, one via its receiver and another via Bluetooth, but the switch to change between the two devices is underneath the keyboard, which isn't very convenient.
Unfortunately, it doesn't have any backlighting and it doesn't have dedicated software to reprogram any keys. However, it has a few extra features to help with your workflow, like media hot keys, a computer lock key, and a calculator button. All in all, if you're looking for a simple wireless keyboard, this is a good choice.

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.
