The best wireless keyboards in 2022

Whether you’re looking to declutter your wire-laden workspace or go ultra-minimal with a pint-sized peripheral, the best wireless keyboards can transform your setup dramatically. There’s little difference between wired and wireless options aside from battery life, but the freedom offered by these wireless variants will let you work away from your desktop, interact with a more diverse selection of devices, or even manage multiple systems at once.

Commercially available since the early 2000s, the current wireless keyboard market is rife with potential picks. From traditional full-sized options to a more ultra-minimalist 40% model, wireless keyboards come in a variety of shapes and sizes. But there are also factors such as switch type, lighting and connectivity to consider. In short, picking the right wireless keyboard can quickly become overwhelming. That’s why we at Laptop Mag tapped into our best-reviewed wireless keyboards, and some options from across the web, to help narrow your search.

Our shortlist isn’t specific to any one category and includes keyboards suited to a variety of tasks, so if you’re specifically looking for a keyboard to tackle gaming, check out the wireless options from our selection of the best gaming keyboards. However, if you’re looking for wireless ergonomics or Bluetooth productivity, these are the best wireless keyboards in 2022.

What are the best wireless keyboards?

The best wireless keyboard you can currently lay claim to is the Razer Pro Type Ultra. Aside from looking like it fell from heaven, the Pro Type Ultra is one of the best typing experiences available thanks to its soft-touch keycaps and ultra-quiet switches. Throw in a supportive and plush wrist rest, and crisp white backlighting and you have a keyboard that is a joy to type on – day or night.

Some keyboards look phenomenal, but little attention might have been paid to how they affect your joints over prolonged use. Ergonomic keyboards might often lack the style or pizazz of others, but they offer impressive comfort and protection against Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) or joint fatigue. If you’re a heavy typist who is often working for long periods, the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard is a no-brainer thanks to its bizarre yet ultimately comfortable design. It requires an adjustment period, but it sure beats carpal tunnel.

If you’re looking to squeeze the most bang from your buck, the Vissles V84 wireless mechanical keyboard is well worth a look. Its cheaper price tag may cause many to doubt it, but in our review, we found the V84 to be quite the dark horse. From an incredible typing experience to a number of user-friendly accessories, the V84 proved itself to be a fantastic wireless keyboard with an equally impressive price attached to it.

Prices set expectations, and with the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro costing over $200, it’s fair to expect top-notch performance and features. You can choose from Razer Green or Yellow mechanical switches on the BlackWidow V3 Pro; both offer a typing experience that is comfortable and tightly responsive. Razer switches are designed from the ground up with gaming in mind, seeking to deliver tournament-grade performance to the fingertips of anyone in front of them.

Dedicated media buttons, a plush leatherette wrist rest, fantastic Razer Chroma per-key-RGB, and a premium build quality all come together to form one of the best wireless gaming keyboards available.

Atypical design takes some getting used to

At first glance, Microsoft’s Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard looks like a keyboard designed by Salvadore Dali, but its slopes, curves and bends all play a vital part in keeping your hands and wrists supported and comfortable. The Sculpt’s design is derived from advanced ergonomic principles, and while its split-keyboard design and domed shape may seem a little alien at first, getting used to the atypical layout allows you to work without the stress and strain of generic keyboards.

Priced at $129.95, the Sculpt is asking a lot for an otherwise relatively feature-slim wireless keyboard. However, this is a device that goes above and beyond its primary function. It also protects your body from RSIs and muscle strains — allowing you to remain productive and injury-free for longer. For that alone, it may as well be priceless to some.

The ROG Falchion is an awesome wireless keyboard that doesn’t compromise on features to achieve its compact form.

Logitech makes some of the best computer peripherals you can lay your hands on, including mice, headsets or keyboards. The G915 Lightspeed is one of those keyboards, sporting a tenkeyless design that is ideal for making the most of your workspace. The reduced keyboard width is great for ergonomics, allowing both hands to be closer together when using a mouse and keyboard at the same time. If you’re gaming, this design also frees up plenty of room to maneuver your mouse, while more productivity or professional-focused users may find this additional space great for other peripherals or accessories.

The G915 Lightspeed features advanced low-profile mechanical switches that are tuned for high-performance use. They’re faster and more accurate than traditional switches, and only take up half the height. There are three switches available that range from clicky and tactile to a smooth linear keystroke, with each option including per-key-RGB lighting. The G915 Lightspeed is fairly gamified in its presentation, though not over the top by any means. If you prefer a more subtle (or productivity-focused) keyboard, there’s also the PFU Happy Hacking Professional 2, another fantastic tenkeyless mechanical keyboard.
