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, so finding the best wireless keyboard for your needs all depends on how you're going to use it.
We've tested over 140 keyboards, and here are our recommendations for the best wireless keyboards. Check our picks for the best keyboards, the best mechanical keyboards, and the best gaming keyboards.
The best wireless keyboard we've tested with mechanical switches is the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro. We tested it with clicky Razer Green switches, but it's also available with linear Razer Yellow switches. The switches are fairly light with a short pre-travel distance while offering good tactile feedback, but they're too loud if you want to use this keyboard in an open-office environment. That said, the Yellow switches should be quieter.
It's a very well-built keyboard with a solid aluminum frame that shows little flex. The keycaps are doubleshot ABS, and the keys are stable, which helps provide a great typing experience. It also has good ergonomics with a comfortable wrist rest. If you're a gamer, you should be happy to know it has low latency and all keys are macro-programmable.
All customization is through the Razer Synapse 3 software, which sadly isn't available on macOS. It means that you'll have to save your macro settings to the onboard memory if you want to use it on a Mac computer. You can connect it with up to three devices at once via Bluetooth or its proprietary receiver. Overall, it's one of the best wireless keyboards we've tested.
The best Bluetooth keyboard we've tested that's compact and mechanical is the Obinslab Anne Pro 2. It's a 60% compact board that's available with multiple Cherry MX, Gateron, and Kailh switches, so you can get the feel you prefer. Our unit came with Gateron Brown switches, which feel light and provide nice tactile feedback. This helps prevent typos since you can feel when a key is registered.
While it doesn't have a USB receiver, you can pair it with up to four devices via Bluetooth, which is more than most of our wireless keyboards. Also, it has customizable RGB backlighting, macro-programmable keys, and its customization software is available on both Windows and macOS. While the latency over Bluetooth is a bit too high for competitive gaming, it's fine for casual gaming and simple tasks. If you play with a wired connection, the latency is significantly lower.
Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a wrist rest, and there aren't any incline settings. While this wouldn't matter for a low profile board, it matters for this model since it has a high profile, so your wrist needs to curve upwards a lot to hit the keys, which might not feel comfortable. That said, if you're looking for a compact, mechanical board with Bluetooth, this is an excellent option.
The best wireless keyboard for office use that we've tested is the Logitech MX Keys. This low-profile model can connect wirelessly via its USB receiver and Bluetooth, and you can pair it with up to three devices. You can easily swap between devices using the dedicated keys next to the functions keys.
This model is a great option for Windows and macOS users since it's fully compatible with both operating systems. Most of its control keys have legends dedicated to both systems, but you can also get a variant with Mac-specific key legends only. It has indented keys to help you hit them in the center, which helps prevent typos. The scissor switches are fairly light and quiet, making the board a great choice for your office setup.
Unfortunately, its software doesn't offer much customization. You can only reprogram some of the keys, and you're limited to a drop-down list of functions. Also, you can't set any macros. If you prefer a more compact model, the Logitech MX Keys Mini is a very similar board in a 65% size. That said, if you're looking for a full-size, wireless keyboard to use with Windows or macOS, this is a very good choice.
If you prefer something with a more ergonomic design, look into the Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard. Although made by the same company, it's very different compared to the Logitech MX Keys. It doesn't have any backlighting, which isn't ideal if you work in a dark room. However, it has a split design, it comes with a wrist rest, and it has negative incline feet meant to relieve stress on your wrists. Typing quality is great once you get used to the design and the scissor switches are quiet. You can reprogram the function keys to a preset list of commands, but you can't set macros.
If you're in the hunt for the best wireless keyboard for the office with non-mechanical switches, you can't go wrong with the MX Keys. However, if you're a fan of ergonomic keyboards, then look into the K860.
The best wireless keyboard for use with TVs we've tested is the Corsair K83 Wireless Entertainment Keyboard. It's among the few we've tested specifically designed for home theater PC setups. It has a built-in trackpad on its right, along with L/R mouse click buttons, a volume control wheel, and a joystick to move around the cursor.
You can connect via its USB receiver or Bluetooth, and you can pair it with up to three devices, which is great if you need to connect the board to the TV, a console, and an HTPC. It has white backlighting to help you see the keys when in the dark, and its scissor switches are light and quiet, which is great if you don't want to make too much noise when binging a show late at night.
Unfortunately, the spacebar on our unit has a strange, tight feel that creates a squeaking sound when pressed. Also, it has no incline settings or wrist rest, but this shouldn't matter unless you're using it at a desk and typing for long periods.
The best budget wireless keyboard we've tested is the Logitech K780. It's a good office keyboard with a full-size layout, so you get a numpad, and the media hotkeys make it easy to skip through your favorite music while working. It even has a unique cradle to hold your mobile devices.
It has a USB receiver and Bluetooth support, and you can connect with up to three devices at once via Bluetooth. There are three hotkeys at the top that you can use to easily switch between devices. It has typical scissor switches with a low profile that offer good tactile feedback, and even though they may feel a bit heavy to press, the typing quality is still great.
Unfortunately, it has limited ergonomics as it doesn't have a wrist rest or any incline settings, but you shouldn't feel too much fatigue because it has a low profile. It doesn't have any backlighting, which is disappointing if you want to use it in a dark room, but that's somewhat expected for a low-cost office keyboard. Overall, it's one of the best wireless 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.
