The 6 Best Wireless Keyboards - Spring 2024 Reviews

Updated Jun 12, 2024 at 03:33 pm
Best Wireless Keyboards

These days, the keyboard market offers plenty of wireless options, from full-size gaming units with split millisecond latency to straightforward Bluetooth boards for everyday browsing. Wireless keyboards offer you several advantages, from portability to cleaner work surfaces. With all these wireless options, picking the best one for you can be difficult.

It's important to start by knowing what type of connection you need. While many higher-end keyboards connect wirelessly either with a 2.4 GHz USB receiver or Bluetooth, some cheaper models only use Bluetooth. Likewise, battery life is another consideration. Wireless gaming keyboards typically come with a rechargeable battery, but you'll have to charge them more frequently, while simpler keyboards typically use disposable batteries with much longer lives.

We've tested over 225 keyboards, including over 85 wireless units. Below, we've created a list of our picks for the best wireless and Bluetooth keyboards. If you're specifically looking for a wireless keyboard for gaming, check out our best gaming keyboards article. For more recommendations, see our picks for the best keyboards and the best mechanical keyboards.

  1. Best Wireless Keyboard

    Of all the keyboards we've tested, we recommend the Razer Pro Type Ultra as the best wireless keyboard for most people. It may look like a straightforward office model with an Apple-inspired white and chrome aesthetic. However, it's a surprisingly versatile mechanical keyboard suitable for productivity, everyday browsing, and competitive gaming. It also offers impressive ergonomic features with two adjustable typing angles and an included wrist rest.

    It doesn't lack connectivity options, either. It comes with a Razer Productivity Dongle that you can pair with select Razer mice, like the Razer Pro Click or its smaller counterpart, the Razer Pro Click Mini. You can also pair it with up to three devices simultaneously using Bluetooth. If there's a downside, it's that this keyboard doesn't come in a variety of switch options, and its full-size form factor means it may take up too much space on small desks.

    If you're looking for a similar alternative, check out the Logitech G715, another sleek-looking wireless model in a more compact size. It's typically about the same price and comes in linear, tactile, or clicky switch varieties. It also includes a unique cloud-shaped wrist rest and full RGB lighting, while the Razer has white-only backlighting. That said, it doesn't support Bluetooth connectivity, and the typing quality on the Razer feels better overall.

  2. Best Mid-Range Wireless Keyboard

    The NuPhy Air75 V2 is the best wireless mechanical keyboard at a mid-range price point. This keyboard offers solid build quality, high portability, and impressive connectivity options. Its keycaps also feel great, and their slim, tile-like design keeps your fingertips comfortably hovering right over them. Just note that these keycaps don't have shine-through legends, so although the keyboard has full RGB backlighting, you can't read the key legends in darker environments.

    There are two switches along the top of the board: one to switch between operating system compatibility and one to toggle between connection types. It connects with its included USB receiver, or you can connect and pair with up to three devices via Bluetooth. NuPhy also sells variants of this keyboard that are exactly the same but in different sizes. These include the smaller NuPhy AIr60 V2 and the larger NuPhy Air96 V2.

    If you prefer a typing experience that feels closer to a laptop keyboard instead, we recommend the Logitech MX Keys S as an alternative. It's a straightforward wireless model that comes in either a full-size format with a Numpad or a more portable mini size. Rather than the mechanical switches found in the NuPhy, the Logitech uses scissor switches with a distinct tactile bump and a good overall typing feel. Also, the Logitech has shine-through keycaps and white backlighting that adjust to the lighting conditions around you, meaning you can easily read the key legends in the dark.

  3. Best Lower Mid-Range Wireless Keyboard

    At a lower mid-range, we recommend the Keychron V5 Max. This is an outstanding wireless mechanical keyboard option with an array of surprising features, given its price. First off, it boasts a gasket mount design that provides a somewhat softer, almost springy-feeling typing experience. It has several other features typically found on higher-priced mechanical keyboards, including high-quality PBT keycaps and multiple layers of acoustic materials inside the case to dampen and even out the sound profile.

    This keyboard is also noteworthy for its hardware customizability options. You can select from a range of different switch types at purchase, and its hot-swappable PCB allows you to easily pop out and replace the stock switches. It even includes a toolkit to help you completely disassemble your keyboard if you want to adjust the sound-dampening material or replace stabilizers. It's also compatible with VIA customization software, allowing you to fine-tune your experience further with custom macros and RGB lighting effects. However, this keyboard isn't entirely without its weaknesses, as it doesn't include a wrist rest or have shine-through keycap legends like our top pick, the Razer Pro Type Ultra.

    This keyboard is also part of a wider V Max series. This lineup has a range of different size options, including a more conventional full-size model and several more compact models. We recommend any size variant in this series, as the basic feature set and build quality remain the same across the entire lineup. You can browse the models in this lineup on Keychron's website here.

  4. Best Budget Wireless Keyboard

    Wireless keyboards tend to be more expensive than wired models, but you can still find good units on a budget, like the Logitech Signature K650. Thanks to its built-in wrist rest and multiple incline settings, you'll be comfortable typing all day. It also has deep-set keys that are easy to reach without tilting your wrists upwards. Another benefit of this design is that the deep-set keys completely cover the switches, exposing no moving parts and offering added protection from crumbs or small spills.

    As it's a budget model, it lacks some additional features, including backlighting, support for multi-device pairing, and a rechargeable battery, but it makes up for it. Instead, it has a row of media control keys along the top and two AA batteries for power that last for up to 36 months before you need to swap them out. You can connect this keyboard to your computer with Bluetooth or use the included Logitech USB receiver to connect with select Logitech mice simultaneously.

  5. Best Cheap Wireless Keyboard

    The best cheap wireless option available is the Logitech Pebble Keys 2 K380s. This keyboard is a standout favorite for students and on-the-go professionals. Its compact size and slim design make it easy to slip into backpacks or laptop cases, and it's an excellent fit for smaller workspaces. It uses AAA batteries for power and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth, allowing you to pair up to three devices simultaneously.

    This is a versatile pick that's hard to beat in this price range. Its circular-shaped keycaps and slightly cramped key layout may take some time to get used to. It's also worth pointing out that its compact layout lacks a Numpad. If you need a Numpad, we recommend the Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard instead. It isn't as portable and doesn't feel as well built overall, but it has a more conventional full-size layout with standard key spacing and is typically available for about the same price.

  6. Best Wireless Gaming Keyboard

    The SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless is the best wireless gaming keyboard. This mechanical keyboard is a powerhouse with exceptionally low latency, solid build quality, and your choice of wireless connectivity options. You can connect with the USB receiver when you need the lowest latency or via Bluetooth to save power or connect to multiple devices. You can also use it wired while it's charging, and the battery will last between 30 to 40 hours, depending on how you use it.

    Its compact size leaves plenty of space for sweeping mouse movements on your desk. But its most exciting feature is the ability to adjust the individual pre-travel distance of each key to suit your preferences. You can increase the pre-travel on any keys you're constantly hitting accidentally or decrease the pre-travel on your WASD cluster for ultra-sensitive movement controls.

    You can also set multiple profiles for different games or a default setting for typing, allowing for a great range in how you use it. You can make all these changes using the companion software, which you can also use to adjust RGB lighting, reassign keys, and set custom macros—letting you completely customize your gaming experience.

Notable Mentions

  • MoErgo Glove80: The MoErgo Glove80 is an ergonomic-focused mechanical keyboard with a tented, split design. It's highly customizable and great for office and gaming use. Unfortunately, build quality is lacking compared to more traditionally designed alternatives like the Razer Pro Type Ultra, and it's much more expensive. See our review
  • Keychron Q5 Max [Q1 Max, Q2 Max, etc.]: The Keychron Q5 Max is an excellent high-end mechanical keyboard that's part of a wider Q Max lineup in various sizes. It's essentially a more premium version of the Keychron V5 Max with a solid aluminum case, more sound-dampening material, and a second layer of gasket mounting hardware. However, it's significantly more expensive than the V5 Max, and its solid metal case also means the typing noise is a bit louder. See our review
  • ASUS ROG Azoth: The ASUS ROG Azoth is an outstanding alternative to the SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless if you want a gaming keyboard that combines superb performance with the sound and feel of more premium custom mechanical keyboards. However, unlike the SteelSeries, you can't customize the pre-travel distance of the switches, and the ASUS is significantly more expensive. See our review

All Reviews

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best wireless and 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.
