The next term is:

610

As these terms are to be read as:

Times on a clock, the interval between each one increasing by 15 minutes:

9:25
+30 mins
9:55
+45 mins
10:40
+60 mins
11:40
+75 mins
12:55
+90 mins
2:25
+105 mins
4:10
+120 mins
6:10

The next term requires an interval of 105+15=120 minutes, or 2 hours, making it 6:10 (or '610' in the colon-less format of the puzzle).
