It's already been said. For studio strobes, it is 125 max. 60 to 125. I knew exactly what your issue was when I'd looked that the bottom one. Canon can do 200 shutter speed.

For some strobes but not all.  I have the same Einstein E640 strobes the OP has and they work fine at 1/250 on my A77 and will go even higher than that if the camera supports it.  They are not your standard cheap strobes with a long flash duration, but the IGBT variety that can have a duration as slow as 1/588 and as fast as over 1/13,000.  He is probably having some sort of sync or compatibility issue with the wireless trigger.  But if he connects his camera directly to the strobe via a cable, I am pretty confident he can shoot at 1/250 with no issue.
