Mechanical keyboards are a niche market that usually caters to gamers although many people who spend a lot of time writing have found them superior to the cheaper standard keyboards.
Gamers love them because they are durable, have excellent response times, and give feedback through the keys.
The sensation of feeling a key when pressed and the click they make gives an immediate verification that a key has done what it is supposed to.
Many writers use them to help eliminate typos and errors. Mechanical keyboards give feedback to a user that a standard keyboard can’t match.
One of the problems with mechanical keyboards is that there are few wireless ones that most people have become accustomed to.
With that said, there are some wireless mechanical keyboards on the market. They do cost more than a wired one but have the advantage of not being tethered to a computer with a USB cord.
Below is a list of wireless mechanical keyboards we have found. If you have found one that works for you, let us know in the comments below.
As always be sure to read reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is the right pick for you.

What to Look for When Buying a Wireless Mechanical Keyboard
A mechanical keyboard differs from a standard keyboard in the switches that are used. While standard keyboard uses an electronic touch interface a mechanical one uses physical switches.
There are different switches that are used called Cherry MX Black, Cherry MX Red, Cherry MX Brown, Cherry MX Blue, Cherry MX Green, and Cherry MX Clear.
Since each mechanical cherry switch is manufactured different they will give a different feel when pressed.
The most commonly used switches are the Cherry MX Blue followed by the Cherry MX Brown.
Cherry MX Blue are used mainly by typist and programmers. The Cherry MX Blue switch makes a click when pressed that gives many writers a sensation of writing that has been lost with standard computer keyboards. Mx Blue switches require 50-60 grams of force to activate a switch which compared to a standard keyboard can vary widely from 25-90 grams of force.
Cherry MX Brown are used mostly by gamers who like the response time of a key when it is pressed and the durability of the switch, which can take a pounding that would break a standard keyboard. They also do not have as much of an audible click as other switches, the click has a softer sound.
They do require more force to push down on (45-55 grams of force) which does not bother gamers since the average gaming controllers require around 160 grams of force.
Which Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Is Right for You?
Finding the right mechanical keyboard is a lot like finding the best of any peripheral device for your computer.
What you plan to use the keyboard for such as gaming or simply typing will predict the type of one to buy.
With that said many people fall in love with their mechanical keyboard and will stick to the type of switch used with the first one they buy.
In the end a user will become accustomed to the type switch they first use, so there are many different opinions when it comes to the switches.
Buying a mechanical keyboard very much depends on the person and the way they type. Some are heavy handed on a keyboard and press down hard on the keys while others press more gently and like a more easily pressed switch.
The clicking sound that is made is also a consideration.
How do I love thee to buy the Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro… but the problem is, it’s so so expensive. The price is $200+ in Amazon, wireless mechanical keyboard is so rare, maybe that’s why it cost that much. How come that most of the best selling mechanical keyboard in Amazon, doesn’t offer a wireless feature.
I know what you mean wireless is important to many users especially a gamer who plays from a couch.
I own two VM87M keyboards. It’s made of Varmilo, which is a PC accessory company from China. Its quality deserves its price. I got it from Chinese website taobao.com for $160 each (with Cherry MX green switch, back light blue LDE, free bluetooth 4.0 dongle).
I have been using them for 4 months and I’m very satisfied. The only problem is that only Win10 supports Bluetooth 4.0 BLE and it doesn’t reconnect after rebooting sometimes. Everything else is good.
Really tempted by the cheap RK 61 Anne clone (without the superfluous programmable backlight) but I would prefer some actual pagination keys instead of having to use Fn+ other keys to achieve the same.
What would be awesome is some kind of Bluetooth HID adapter that can be retrofitted to an existing USB compatible keyboard. Just pop inside with a smallish li-ion and good to go.
USB reliable single dongle that can be shared by both keyboard and mouse (like standard sets). I would plunge immediately. I posted few times on Amazon with Velocifire 87 (keyless)
wireless keyboard. They have not responded yet.
Which one of this keyboards better to buy for MMO RPG games?
I just got one of the Dierya keyboard with the brown switches which seem to be just the right amount of clickiness. The right shift key is small and in a weird place, but otherwise, everything seems to be where I want it. Where can you find the driver software mac?
I’d like a tenkeyless wireless mechanical keyboard which can also be wired, and has the ability to swap out the switches as well as the key caps. Can anyone recommend one?
Mass Drop recently had an Royal Kludge RK61 60% bluetooth mechanical for sale.
While it’s mostly good, I can’t overcome the fact that it doesn’t have HOME/END/PGUP/PGDN keys and there is no way to update the firmware to emulate them. (Is there actually a programmer who doesn’t use those keys???)
Something to be aware of.
My problem is not wanting to have to hold down another key (FN) to access these pagination keys. I often find myself scrolling through lots of text using PG UP and DOWN.
I smell a niche market for :
– Reliable USB/PS2 to long range bluetooth/wireless adapter
– Wireless, backlit, mechanical, full keyboard (i.e. with numpad AND arrow keys)
I’d buy them at once.
I agree. I just got a Logitech MX master 2s mouse and love having the wire off my desk. If they had a full size backlit RGB keyboard with cherry MX brown with a micro USB or USB type C connector for charging, and could get over a month on a single charge I’d pay easily 300 for it.
I think the Logitech G913 fits your description… Exactly
