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 a lot of different types of keyboards, whether they're for the office or playing games.
We've tested over 120 keyboards; here are our recommendations for the best wireless keyboards. Also, check out our recommendations for the best keyboards and the best mechanical keyboards, and if you're looking for a more gaming-oriented board, here are our recommendations for the best gaming keyboards.
The best wireless mechanical keyboard we've tested is the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro. It has a sturdy-feeling plastic body and an aluminum faceplate that exhibits very little flex. There's also an included wrist rest and multiple incline settings, so you're unlikely to experience any fatigue, even when using it for long periods.
It connects wirelessly with a USB receiver or over Bluetooth, and you can pair up to three devices wirelessly. However, you can also use it in wired mode with the included USB-C charging cable. It has full RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys, extremely low latency, a volume wheel, and dedicated media keys. You can program macros to any key either directly on the keyboard or with the companion software. The unit we tested has clicky Razer Green switches that require only moderate force to operate, have short pre-travel distance, and provide great typing quality overall. If you'd prefer quieter switches without tactile feedback, it's also available with linear Razer Yellow switches.
Unfortunately, this keyboard takes up a lot of space, especially with the wrist rest attached, and the companion software isn't compatible with macOS. Despite this, it's an extremely versatile keyboard with excellent overall performance, and it's the best wireless mechanical keyboard we've tested.
If you're interested in a smaller alternative, check out the Obinslab Anne Pro 2. Its ergonomics aren't quite as good, and it lacks some of the extra features of the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro, but it has a smaller compact 60% size and is available with a wider range of switch types. While it's substantially lighter and only made of plastic, it feels very sturdy and well-built. You can connect it wired with the included USB-C charging cable or wirelessly via Bluetooth, and you can wirelessly pair it with up to four devices. It has full RGB backlighting, all its keys are macro-programmable, and it's available with a variety of Gateron, Cherry MX, and Kailh switches. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a wrist rest or multiple incline settings, and it lacks arrow keys, which may be a concern for some people.
If you'd like a mechanical keyboard with better ergonomics and extra features, go with the Razer, but if you want a smaller, compact keyboard that's available with a wider range of switch types, get the Obinslab.
The Logitech MX Keys is the best wireless keyboard for office use that we've tested. This full-sized model has a fairly small footprint since it has very thin borders, giving you more space for other office supplies on your desk. Its frame is made of metal, and the keys are made of dense, good-quality plastic, making the keyboard feel quite sturdy overall.
It offers a great typing experience and shouldn't cause fatigue over time. It uses scissor switches that feel light and responsive, and the keys have a small indentation to help you type faster and with fewer typos. You can connect it via Bluetooth or with its USB receiver and pair it with up to three devices at the same time. It also has white backlighting that makes it easier to work in a dark environment.
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 prefer a more ergonomic model for office work, check out the Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard. It’s not as versatile as the Logitech MX Keys, and it doesn't have any backlighting, but it has a curved design and a wrist rest, resulting in outstanding ergonomics. It uses tactile scissor switches with a noticeable bump before actuation and offers excellent typing quality once you get used to its particular shape and split-key layout. Unfortunately, there isn't any onboard memory to save your settings, and you can't macro-program any key, but it's possible to customize some of them with a list of preset commands.
If you want a very good and versatile office keyboard, choose the MX Keys, but if you want an ergonomic model, then the ERGO K860 is an amazing choice for office use.
The best wireless 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 that has a Bluetooth connection, and it's quiet enough for any kind of environment. Its 65% compact design makes it very lightweight, and it's small enough to fit into most bags, so it’s quite easy to carry it around with you.
It has good typing quality, with stable keys and a low profile that makes it comfortable to type on for long periods. It has scissor switches with a noticeable tactile bump, though the keys still feel light and responsive. You can connect it with up to three devices simultaneously and easily switch between them with the F1-F3 keys. There are also media hotkeys, and you can reprogram a few function keys to a list of preset functions within the companion software.
Unfortunately, there aren’t too many customization options available, and there isn't any backlighting, so it's not ideal to use in a dark room. Also, the build quality is only decent, as it’s made of plastic and has some flex to it, but it still feels solid enough for regular use. All in all, if you are looking for a compact wireless keyboard to pair with a mobile or a tablet, the Logitech is an excellent choice and also one of the best keyboards that we've tested.
The best Bluetooth keyboard for TV usage that we’ve tested is the Corsair K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard. It’s designed to be used with a smart TV and has a ton of extra features to this effect, like a built-in trackpad, a joystick, and L/R mouse click buttons directly on the board. It also feels very well-built as it’s made with a mix of metal and dense plastic that gives it a rather premium look.
It has good typing quality, with scissor switches that feel light, though maybe a bit mushier than other keyboards. It also has customizable white backlighting, which is great for when you want to watch TV in a dark room. You can connect it with three different devices at the same time, and it's easy to switch between them. Plus, it’s fully compatible with both Windows and macOS, and all the main typing keys work on iOS and iPadOS. The keyboard is small and lightweight, so you should be able to use it comfortably while sitting on a couch.
Unfortunately, the ergonomics are only decent, as it’s a straight board with no incline settings and no wrist rest, but at least it has a flat, low profile design, so typing on it shouldn't cause fatigue. Also, the spacebar of our unit has a small squeak when being pressed, as if air was being pushed out, but your experience may vary. All in all, if you are looking for a wireless keyboard to use with your TV, this is a great choice.
The best wireless keyboard we've tested in the budget category is the Kensington Pro Fit Ergo Wireless Keyboard. This full-sized model has a split-key layout with a fixed wrist rest and feet that create a negative incline. Its build quality is decent enough and is comparable to other curved boards we've tested. You can pair it wirelessly with two devices via Bluetooth or with its USB receiver.
The rubber dome switches it uses require some force to get over the tactile bump, but otherwise, they 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 really 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.
